MESSAGE #1313 LEARN FROM THE DUKE
”What a player does best, he should practice least. Practice is for problems.”
I love the quote above by the late, baseball great, Duke Snider. Most athletes practice what they are already good at—because it’s more fun. The key is to have fun while focusing on constant improvement. Practice your weaknesses, instead of running away from them.
Recently, someone was looking through my new mental skills workbook and found some errors. I said, “Here’s a pen, please give me your suggestions.” He said, “But I don’t want you to feel bad.”
I then responded, “You’re not going to make me feel bad, you’re making me BETTER.”
