About this book:

After the death of a neighbour and fellow Olympic athlete, Melinda Harrison felt deeply moved to examine the difficulties faced by many high-performers after reaching what seemed to be the height of their careers or lives. Focusing her lens on elite athletes in particular, Harrison interviewed more than 100 high-achievers who have successfully navigated the transition from a life filled with peak performance to a new arena.

Personal Next describes the arc of transition common to all high-performers, including the ascent to peak achievement, the messy middle of change, and the move toward new and different accomplishments. Woven throughout are stories from elite athletes and high achievers, including Harrison herself. Personal Next should be read by anyone who needs practical information and tools for managing life reinvention.
