Here are a few of the highlights from our conversation…

1. How after playing one year of college baseball Dana realized his most likely path to the majors wasn’t going to be as a player which led to an internship and eventually full time job with the Yankees

2. Behind the scenes stories of Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera’s routines during their playing career that made them high performers consistently

3. Why he wrote Habits of a Champion in an easy read 15 short stories format from interactions with Yankees greats and businesspeople along his life

4. Why Dana suggests drowning out the noise of what other people are doing and instead answering specific questions he poses going into 2021


Dana’s story shows champions are made through focusing on being consistent.
