Karen Furneaux is a 3-time Olympian, 2-time World Champion, and the winner of 9 medals at the World Championships over her 20-year professional sprint kayaking career. Karen is now a published author, a broadcast analyst with CBC, and a professional speaker.
I talk to Karen about the lessons she learned through her lifelong dedication to her sport, and how she’s using that learning to motivate others as a speaker and stay resilient after retiring from competitive kayaking.
We discuss how to set meaningful and achievable goals, the connection between wellness, mindset, and performance, the role of alcohol in wellness (including a funny anecdote about the Beijing Olympics), and how to build resilience and avoid burnout.

Why do so many resolutions fail? I answer this question and provide several options for “rethinking your resolutions” this year and setting yourself up for lasting success.
What might happen if you set goals around how you wanted to feel, instead of what you wanted to do?
Or stacked one small habit on top of another, instead of reaching for that extreme “quick fix” solution?
If you’ve made resolutions year after year, with little to no permanent results, this podcast episode is for you! Try different this year, not harder.
