15 Jan January 15, 2021 – Developing Discipline Thane Marcus Ringler and Sinful Dr. David Salomon
Thane Marcus – Co-Founder and Host of The Up & Comers Show
The process of discipline happens in much smaller increments
than we expect. Discipline is not a giant leap forward.
Thane Marcus Ringler is a former Professional Golfer turned Speaker, Writer, and Development Coach. After competing for nearly four years as a professional, he transitioned out of the world of golf into his current endeavors. The focus of Thane’s work is to help others live and work better, and it centers on the realm of human development, both personally and professionally. The primary way he does this is through the Development Coaching practice he runs, as well as through the online courses and additional coaching programs that he is offering. Thane also hosts The Up & Comers Show, a podcast all about learning how to live a good life and the process of becoming. In his book, From Here to There: A Quarter-Life Perspective On The Path To Mastery, Thane speaks to the reality that, more times than not, we will fail, but in failing there’s learning, and in learning there’s growth.
