I had the pleasure of coaching kids soccer for a decade and really enjoyed it (in fact I am surprised at how much I miss it).
When the girls were running laps, inevitably a few would round off the corners and cut the run short. At which point, I’d have them run again because keeping the corners was important.
It was holding them accountable for what they were going to do.
During any given day, it is simple to let up a little bit and not give 100%.
And that is where the bad habits starts. When we do a little less we begin to accept that it is OK. Which leads to doing a little less next time.
You see where this goes?
In 2016 make the commitment to yourself that you will keep the corners and go 100%.
