Failing to plan is planning to fail.
Be honest. Do you actually put this into daily practice?
For the last couple years, I have made a daily habit of planning out my day the night before. I don’t wait until the next day and hope I get it done.
Great coaches and great players don’t base their game on hope. They don’t hope things happen. They plan it. They get it on the calendar. They get things done.
Something you can do to work towards success is planning your day, the night before. Sit down. Get out a piece of paper. Put it in your phone. Plan out what you need to get done the next day.
After you have made your list of what needs to get done, prioritize your list. Create “A,” “B,” and “C,” categories.
- “A” Category: What is top of the line? Urgent? Must be done.
- “B” Category: What needs to get done but may be able to pushed back?
- “C” What would be an extremely successful day, if you were able to get these tasks done too?
Plan out your day. Don’t base your game on hope. You’ll like the results.

This is a correspondence between PGC owner Dena Evans and a long-time PGC grad. I was so moved by Dena’s response to this player, which the player’s father shared with me, I decided to ask Dena, and this athlete, for permission to share this correspondence publicly. If you know the heart-ache and disappointment of not reaching your team or individual goals, this is a must-read.
PGC Director Sam Allen brings you this drill called “3-part Floater” to help your players add options to their arsenal. These finishes require players come to a controlled stop, on two feet. This control will allow them to change their attack and take advantage of whatever the defense gives them.
Do coaches play favorites?
…Yes they do.
