Divorce in High Performers


Many were shocked to hear about Bill and Melinda Gates getting divorced. But some weren’t. After all, they are both extreme pushers, those who care deeply about their mission and work. The cost of this deep caring is often making sacrifices in other areas of life. On this episode of the Growth Equation Podcast, Brad and Steve dive into what big drive, purpose, and motivation — all usually thought of as positive attributes — can leave in their wake. They not only discuss divorce in relationships, but also how a peak pursuit can divorce you from many other elements of your life.
