In the chaos of sport, as in life, process provides us a way. You’ve got to do something difficult ? Don’t focus on that. Break it down into pieces and simply do what tou need to do “right now”. And do it better than anyone else.
When it comes to our actions, disorder and distraction are death. The unordered mind loses track of what’s in front of it - what matters and gets distracted by thoughts of the future. “Under the comb, the tangle and the straight path are the same”. That’s what “The Process” teaches us. Let’s think about what we can do today, the task at hand. Let’s think about that drill in this moment.
Excellence is a matter of steps. And every step counts, not just the first and last.
The process is about doing the right things, right now. Not worrying about what might happen later, or the results, or the whole picture. Later doesn’t exist in reality.
Take your time, don’t rush. Some problems are harder than others. Deal with the ones right in front of you, break them down into blocks and eliminate them one by one. Come back to the others later. You’ll get there.
We must all either wear out or rust out, every one of us. My choice is to wear out.
