Making Your ‘What’s Next’ the Best Yet (Feat. Eric Wood)

Hard as it is to believe sometimes, there is life beyond the Salesforce ecosystem, and we’re talking about it this week! To celebrate our last episode of 2022, we’re taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture with super special guest Eric Wood, Buffalo Bills Radio Network color commentator, podcaster, and author of Tackle What’s Next. Eric gets frank about the mindset it took to re-envision and reshape his goals after sustaining a football career-ending neck injury in 2017, shares advice for professionals venturing into uncharted territory, and of course — talks Bills vs. Bengals ahead of next week’s game in Cincinnati. And importantly: Would Wild Mike’s or Chandler’s chicken wings hold up to the Buffalo, NY standard of crispy, zingy excellence?

Episode 11 Highlights

Why so many people hesitate to take the initial steps on a new journey, and why it’s easy to underestimate what can be accomplished in a year

Thoughts on overcoming adversity, and a universally applicable manta from Bills coach Sean McDermott: “We’re gonna win, or we’re gonna learn.”

Why Bengals nose tackle Domata Peko is both the nicest guy in the world and was the most tactically distracting: his habit of having a full-blown coffee klatch before the first game series.
