Be attached to process, not outcomes.

Back in January, to start the year, I wrote about setting goals not resolutions. As we approach halfway through this one (already?!) it’s a great time to reflect on how far we have come and reassess what is still ahead.  A veteran teach I worked with earlier shared with me this analogy I’m going toContinue reading “Be attached to process, not outcomes.”

“Don’t let perfection get in the way of progress.”

As we sat around at halftime of the game, our coach said this with a calm and direct voice. I had been beating myself up over missed plays, mistakes, and mishaps in the first half, rather than looking ahead or staying in the present moment. “Don’t let perfection get in the way of progress.” ItContinue reading ““Don’t let perfection get in the way of progress.””

It’sContinue reading “Don’t leave things to chance”

It takes courage to ask.

Set goals, not resolutions. Every new year can be an opportunity to take stock, to take inventory… What is working and what’s not? When I think about my own goals, I think about what it is I need, and how I ask for what I need. It takes courage to ask for help, and whenContinue reading “It takes courage to ask.”

Coaches Bring Out the Best.

“It’s a tough job because I’m the guy that has to tell the best shooter that ever lived that it’s not good enough.” (Brandon Payne, Steph Curry’s Personal Performance & Skills Coach) If you haven’t heard, Stephen Curry recently cemented himself as the best shooter of all time by hitting his 2,974th three-point shot inContinue reading “Coaches Bring Out the Best.”
