Building A Great Partnership, Part II


Bo: It’s very tricky in a relationship to be coaching your spouse. I would pretty much stay out of that. Dawn: I don’t listen to anything he says. Zero. Bo: She never does anything. She never participates. Dawn: We were laughing about this the other day. Every New Year, he loves to get these big, […]


Building A Great Partnership


Bo: The one thing about our relationship that has been true since the day we met, from when we first got married to now after 17 years, the one constant that we’ve always had is that we’re always building something. We’re building a thing all the time. Dawn: Yeah, we’re fighting for something together. Bo: […]


Get Next to Greatness


When I was a kid, my brother and I had dreams of playing pro football. I think I was 12 when my dad took us to our first pro football game. We were so excited. It was the L.A. Rams versus the Oakland Raiders and it was pre-season game. My dad got tickets and we […]


Getting Off Balance


Bo: We get asked that question all the time. Balance. People love to use that word. I think people use the word ‘balance’ so that they don’t achieve anything. I do. I think they use that word if somebody’s really successful at something. Like say somebody is a really great basketball player. People go, “Well, […]


Stop Rescuing Your Kids


Dawn: I think it’s really interesting to think about how you and your brother grew up in this small farming community. Your goal to play football was all you really had to focus on. We have these three amazing kids who are so fortunate to grow up the way they’re growing up because we’ve created […]


How To Push Yourself (and Others) Toward Greatness


I know this looks like a fancy office. It is not my office, as you know. I’m at home today. Sometimes I stay home and do work here. My wife Dawn goes crazy because we have this giant table. I mean it’s huge and it’s in the dining room. I think Vikings once sat here […]


Why Falling Down Isn’t Failure


I went through this process of eliminating stuff from my diet with my guy Tim Adams, who trains me and sets my nutrition schedule. He’s very good at what he does and a very smart guy. So we would take a week and cut out sugar. Tim would measure me before, while I was eating […]


Hard Work Wins Every Time


Hey, here we are in my backyard and this is the scene of the crime. I want to show you something. I want to show you exactly what it looks like, the improvements you can make, over a year’s time if you do what I do … or what I actually make my kids do. […]


Why Your Dreams Need A Partner


Welcome to the Bo Eason blog post, you ready? Have you ever seen anybody get arrested while doing a blog post? This might be the first time. So follow me, follow me—this is not my house. This is my neighbor’s house. Follow me. Let’s go. You ready? So we’re sneaking in the back. If you […]


Why Rituals Lead to Greatness


Today I want to talk about routine and ritual. Okay, so we’re back in Axel’s—my 8-year-old son’s—room. Up on the wall, as we went through last time, is his 20-year plan, his dream and how we’re going—how he is going—to make that come true. I don’t think anything great or really excellent has ever been […]
