Stop Procrastinating: Start with Just One Thing

You can’t do everything, but you can do one thing, and then another and another. In terms of energy, it’s better to make a wrong choice than none at all. You might begin by listing your priorities—for the day, for the week, for the month, for a lifetime. Start modestly. List everything you want to do today or tomorrow. Set priorities by dividing the items into A, B, and C categories. At the least, accomplish the A items. Try the same thing with long-term goals. Priorities do shift, and you can change them at any time, but simply getting them down in black and white adds clarity to your life, and clarity creates energy.

Push—or Pull Back?

Learning when to push and when to pull back is an important part of athletic maturity & something I still struggle with a lot. LISTEN to your body and learn to understand when you need to pull out the grit and push through and when you need to put your ego aside to successfully get the best out of your body THAT day. Even if it’s not the most ideal session.
