Don’t be tempted to jump ahead though, just follow things in their order.
Ok, let’s go!!
—————————O – ORGANIZE – DAY 3——————————-
An easy way to improve your tennis in a short period of time (even just a a day) is to be more productive, so, today you need to sit down & look at what you do……a bit of brainstorming.
Write down the patterns to the way you go about your practises etc…….are you doing things regularly that are clearly not the best use of your time or even a waste of time?
Are there things that you could just be doing more efficiently?
Just because you’ve always done things that way doesn’t mean they’re right does it?
You may not be on the tennis court every day but are there things that you could be doing that could push your game forwards?
Brainstorm around what you have written, come up with ways to ORGANIZE your time & try them out to see how they work.
We all have the same time available to us every day (24 hours) but I bet with the exercise today you find that you get a bit more out of your 24 hour period than before……..and that adds up over time
—————————-D – DEFUSE – DAY 4————————————
Today you need to look at the negative things impacting your game.
What is the no 1 thing harming your game right now?
I don’t just mean a bad shot (which is what most people say)….it could be a destructive behavior on court, a lack of fitness or even a bad situation at home that you carry onto the courts with you.
Whatever it is, it’s time to identify it & defuse it because part of the skill of moving forwards is identifying & dealing with what’s holding you back……..not things that are progressing slowly (like that developing backhand) I mean things that are acting like anchors and stopping you moving forwards………it’s no good having a Ferrari if you drive it with the handbrake on!!
I have never come across a player who couldn’t identify at least one thing that was holding them back and in most cases there are more than one.
Resolve them asap.
Take time today to identify them & an action plan to DEFUSE them.
Hope that helped….next time is all about your resources, so stick around!!
