Discipline and Losing It

Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 13 May 2022
Author / Presenters: Brandon Jack, Mark Willacy, Jenny Valentish

Training to be tough, to be unflinching and heroic under pressure. Among the images of the self-discipline required to achieve outstanding capabilities, there’s the failures – those who lose it and mess up, with disastrous results. In the military and in sport, why do some people manage rigorous training and flourish, while others can’t handle it? Do we push too hard to make young people achieve difficult goals? When is it ok just to give up?

Tickets $20 full / $16 concession or multi-buy.
