The 864,

The 864 with Isa Nacewa – Morning Routines, Learning Curves, and the Value of Positive Distractions | #013

October 11, 2018

Welcome to the 864 Podcast.

We’re continuing the sporting theme (last episode with Irish International Football John Egan), but shifting code to Rugby this time. I’m delighted to be able to share this podcast with the Leinster legend Isa Nacewa.

Isa joined Leinster in 2008 and, over the next decade, in two stints with the province, won four Champions Cups, the Challenge Cup and 3 Pro-14 titles. He has been called greatest import to Irish Rugby if not European. He’s been not only immensely successful at winning trophies, his humility, lack of ego, and selflessness also very much stand out in the legacy he’s created in the game.

I talked with Isa couple of weeks back when in Ireland just for a few days during which time there was a testimonial dinner in his honour. It was a flying visit, but he still managed to squeeze in time for an early morning chat for the podcast.

As we recorded it in the morning, morning routines started off the conversation and we went from there. Rugby does get a mention but habits, behaviours, and mental strength are at the core of the podcast.

It was a real pleasure to talk with Isa. I’ve taken something (actually many things) of value from it that I can put into practice. My hope is you can too. Thanks to Mereula for helping make the connection.
