About This Show
A show that's got racers talking. With drinks.
The sport of racing has a rich history few understand. The rush of mind splintering speeds blasting racers through the confined narrows of streets to be the fastest in a given distance was in essence, timeless. You see the sport of racing is intimately intertwined with time itself. Yet for the racing driver, a race against the clock ironically vanquishes the average human to a present state of awareness the buddhist monk trains his entire life for. Cafe Machina was created with this storied history in mind, where co-hosts and pro drivers TJ Fischer and Chris Wehrheim dig into the fractal nuances of motorsport. The show features twice monthly guests ranging from AI engineers to marketing gurus all the way to x-games gold medalists.
Find out about the future of cars and transportation, storylines you almost never hear, and the occasional F1 race review/rant. Welcome to the wide world of a driver. Join the conversation on our newly launched podcast.Read more »

#12 - Suck Less, Think Better with Dr. Jacques Dallaire
"Nobody in the history of performance based settings has ever said - I want to fail. I really want to suck at this, could you show me how to be worse than I already am?. The more we invest in understanding how we think, the more likely we are to control the way we think. And that has a huge impact on performance."
In this episode we were able to sit down with mental performance expert and author of Performance Thinking, Dr. Jacques Dallaire during the 12 hours of Sebring race event in Florida. Jacques has worked with drivers such as Ayrton Senna, Nigel Mansell, and Helio Castroneves to name a few. If you are in a performance setting or better yet, a racing driver, looking to improve your mental game - this episode is for you. We were stoked to have the time with him. Highlighting a few topics, we covered:
* The Focus Paradox: “If you would just focus more!!”
* Your dominant thought shapes your reality. What’s yours?
* The crippling side effects of pursuing success: Fear of Failure
* Imagery, visualization, but better
We urge everyone to go check out Jacque’s website http://www.performanceprime.com/ and buy his book. His strategies apply to many facets of life, even outside of racing, and I can’t say enough good things about his approach.
