In speed skating, a hard pivot is an aggressive shift of direction that requires courage, practice, and split-second timing. “In life,” says Apolo Ohno, “we all face moments when we must make a hard pivot—times when we must adapt, reinvent, and find renewed purpose in the face of profound changes.” With Hard Pivot, this Olympic gold medalist and bestselling author offers an invaluable guide to anyone facing uncertainty, hardship, and loss of identity in the ever-shifting landscape of our lives.

The world sees Ohno as an athletic superstar. “But inside,” he writes, “I faced challenges like anyone else.” Through each crisis—in his athletic career and beyond— he developed new habits and practices that helped him restore inner balance and overcome the odds. Now he shares his most valuable insights: his “five golden principles” for adapting and thriving in the face of chaos, self-doubt, and pressure.
