"There's a secret to mastery that you may have never heard, a single little thing that only the very best in the world know how to do. In fact, I believe it is the only thing anyone can do to gain true mastery at anything, and it's an equal opportunity principle. It can be applied to fulfill your potential in business, in sports, in your relationships, as well as your overall life. Do you want to know what it is?"
In the crowd, Jason leaned forward, laser focused. Kicked off his basketball team after a season-ending fight, his only chance to play ball again was to sell enough books door-to-door over the summer to get back on the team. He never needed wisdom like he needed it now. But little did he know that the answer he was seeking was about to change his life forever. Pound The Stone is the intense and inspiring story of a young man's journey through the obstacles, defeats, and eventual victories that come while developing grit on the path to mastery. Told in the same engaging fable style as Chop Wood Carry Water, this is a deeper dive into the timeless principles that guide and inspire anyone who seeks greatness in life, and covers everything from true success, to the perfection trap, the value of failure, why courage is contagious, and why vulnerability can save your life. Pound The Stone will move you, inspire you, and hopefully encourage you to choose love and courage over fear and shame.

Chop Wood, Carry Water x 10 !!!


After reading "Chop Wood, Carry Water", I sent an email to Joshua for the action plan and he asked if I started "Pound the Stone". It really is CWCW 2.0, but goes deeper.

Following Jason on his journey, you see someone that comes from a broken home, deep-rooted anger, and a mindset that talent always wins, and cheer him on as he develops into a great man utilizing the principles his mentor, Russ, teaches him over three summers.

"Pound the Stone" has quick chapters, each capturing a simple principle of how consistency and persistence can win in the end. The simple things in life are easy to do, though they are also easy NOT to do, and this is illustrated numerous times and masterfully throughout this book. Enjoy!

Great book for those willing to POUND through adversity!

Medcalf does a great job making the reader feel a part of the characters life! Didn’t want to quit listening -always wanted to know Jason’s next move or thought and the advice that Ron would give! Great depiction of what true GRIT and staying focused through adversity will get you. Never giving up-continuing to POUND THE STONE until the end -no matter the outcome- stay focused on the PROCESS-that is what makes one great in the end!
