Jan. 12 | The 3-Point Play
A good athlete learns to ignore mistakes entirely, not thinking about them until after the game is over.
The time to consider mistakes is in the film room. But when you’re in action, choose one of two winning responses:
- Ignore the mistake, act as though it did not happen.
- Hype the action. Pick it up. Expend a burst of energy to see if you can immediately reverse the mistake before the other team has had a chance to react and take advantage of it.
It’s important to understand that your mistake response is a habit, nothing more, nothing less. If you practice a fast-motion response, that will be your habit. If you let yourself stand there hanging your head, that will be your habit.
The choice is yours…

Confidence is a filter, tinting how we see the challenges before us and our ability to handle them.
It tips the scales toward an optimistic or pessimistic view of our current situation.
When our confidence is high, we are able to cope with the demands of the event. We can manage our fears and doubts, quiet the negative voices, and redirect our focus to the task at hand.
Confidence expands our ability to act, to manage, and to make our way through difficult situations.
– Steve Magness
The way to obtain the most spare time possible is through intelligent scheduling.
And the main points of good scheduling are simple:
- Plan tomorrow tonight.
- Write down everything that needs to be done and then number them in the order you want to do them.
- Do the things you like least first. When you have energy, it is easier to get an unpleasant thing done. When you are tired, it’s nearly impossible.
Welcome to the 3-Point Play, where you’ll get a quick dose of wisdom to enhance your game and life.

- basketball teaching,

3-Point Play: On visualization, managing the fire, and endless passion
The process of “seeing” it in your mind’s eye aids the brain in giving the body the commands necessary to make the thing happen during the time of performance.
