Jim Fannin Show: Music: Hop A Ride To The Zone

One common misconception that I often come across is the idea that greatness is made of two ingredients: discipline and focus. For sure, those are two essential elements for peak performance. But individuals, teams and companies who are only driven by these two components will never discover their best. You need all five pieces of the S.C.O.R.E.® System. Leaning too much toward relaxation and enjoyment, nothing is going to get done. Similarly, if the only fuel in the tank comes from discipline and concentration, you’re speeding down the highway toward a destination of “burnout.” We all need periodic boosts of optimism, relaxation and enjoyment, and often those “mental reset” periods come through great music and inspirational songs.

My special guest on this episode is musician, songwriter Jim Peterik of the Ides of March, formerly of Survivor and of 38 Special fame. He has helped countless individuals “hop a ride” to a Zone state through the music of his own bands, as well as songs he’s written for The Beach Boys, REO Speedwagon, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Cheap Trick and many more. During his career, Jim has racked up 20 top 10 hits and has been honored with a Grammy Award and an Oscar nomination.

We dive into some of the most iconic moments of Jim’s career, like when Sylvester Stallone left Jim a voicemail to pen the theme song for Rocky III, which led to the instant classic, “Eye of the Tiger.” But at the heart of this episode lies the truth that music is an essential part of your toolbox for peak performance and an awesome, well-balanced life.

In this episode you’ll learn:
