Circle of Excellence athletes recognized
June 28, 2013
1. Don’t shirk the work
– It takes 10,000 hours or 10 years of practice to become an expert. The workouts, alone in the early morning, make champions.
2. Purposeful practice
– Always have something specific to work on at each practice. Working toward small goals will help you achieve the ultimate goal.
3. Imitate and steal from better athletes
– Analyze athletes in your discipline you look up to, take the things they do well and make them your own.

4. Be willing to look stupid
– The only way to progress is to reach and reaching beyond your current ability will cause mistakes. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes because you are afraid of looking silly.
