Here are three good suggestions from The Essential John Wooden that are good for trading.

1. Start and end every practice at exactly the same time.

2. Expect failure. Assume every shot will be missed. Be ready for what comes, be it a tip in, rebound, fast break or something else.

3. Get the fundamentals right. Double tie all shoelaces. Make the uniforms fit perfectly and get in position for every rebound the perfection of little things usually determines if a job is well done.

Anatoly Veltman comments: 

This reminds your "Base of Operations" post last year. I commented that I beat out almost a million checker challengers in the old country by merely sitting straight down the precise middle of the checkerboard, which allowed me to quickly count as much as 30 moves ahead on 100-square board.





Speak your mind
