“We kept every game day consistent—trained the same muscles, did the same kind of workout, accounted for every component that might affect his shot and his endurance, eliminated as many of those variables as we could, so his body became prepared to play under the same conditions, regardless of the game schedule.” — Winning: The Unforgiving Race to Greatness by Tim S. Grover
I am, of course, walking on a treadmill and not winning my 6th NBA championship.
In any case, I started reading this book as I’m sort of doing 75 Hard (which, of course doesn’t actually suggest “sort of” doing it or you’re not doing the program at all). Part of the program is reading ten pages every day.
I decided to pick this one up because I’ve already read Can’t Hurt Me and wanted something new to tell me how soft I am.
I picked this quote about consistency because I’m trying to get back into doing small things for the long haul.
Sometimes the issue with writing is picking what to write about. Or picking a specific quote. Or transcribing a podcast clip. Basically a bunch of stuff that isn’t actually writing.
So my small daily writing goal can be grabbing a single book quote and writing a little bit about it. This will…
- Help me keep track of what I’m reading day to day
- Allow me to write a little bit without needing to think of a topic
Then when I record the podcast every week I can try to just open this blog and talk about some of the posts I’ve written.
And if I do this a few times a week, I’ll finally win 6 NBA championships.
