    BASKETBALL TEACHING
    Most players struggle with their confidence because they don’t measure their performance.

    You are your ideal opponent. The best way to improve is to compete ferociously against your perfectly matched competitor, You-Yesterday.

    And there is no better way to do that than by charting and measuring.

    If you don’t have a chart on your wall or a notebook under your bed—some way of comparing your competitive effort—you aren’t practicing effectively to improve.
     
    ― Dick DeVenzio
    Founder of PGC


    LIFE LESSON
    “Leaders must be tough enough to fight, tender enough to cry, human enough to make mistakes, humble enough to admit them, strong enough to absorb the pain, and resilient enough to bounce back and keep on moving.”
    – Jesse Jackson


    EDUCATIONAL TIP
    Want to know an easy way to get more A’s in school without trying harder? All you have to do is find a study buddy who can hold you accountable.

    People are 65% likely to meet a goal after committing to another person. In school that’s a D.

    If you want to skyrocket your odds of success to 95%, quit studying alone.
