Great pod but wondering…

Mark,

I absolutely love the pod and your insights. Recently you had Andrew Reynolds on. You asked an unfair question in my opinion when you inquired something to the effect of “what if I am doing all the mental work etc but not seeing results?” How can someone answer that? That’s like asking a swing coach “I am doing everything and tried everything but it’s not working.” I believe you put your guest in a very uncomfortable spot by asking that. Obviously there are always reasons why things are not working and without real context, a coach cannot diagnose an issue. Again, love the pod and respect your work. Be well.
