A calm mind and laser-like focus are more important than adrenaline

Yesterday I was answering a question posted on a blog about adrenaline and lifting heavy weights, and it got me thinking.

Two things I mentioned were the necessity for having a calm mind and laser-like focus, which was how I approached all of my parachute jumps in the military.

Whether you are lifting heavy weights or attempting any other potentially dangerous task, like parachute jumping, there is no room for error!
