Jan­u­ary is always tough in the NBA. Long road trips to cold places, almost half the sea­son com­plet­ed, but still many games ahead. It is men­tal­ly and phys­i­cal­ly drain­ing. Your body hurts after 5 games in 7 nights. Some days it’s tough to keep going, giv­ing your all. How do you find that All-Star per­for­mance when you can bare­ly remem­ber what city you’re in?

Have you ever felt like this? Try­ing to fig­ure out how to keep going or get it going again after the end of a big year?

When I felt my game slip­ping a bit, when I couldn’t grab a rebound or find an open shot, I’d call my junior col­lege coach Tom Lubin, some­times at 3 am! He had giv­en me my start and was always there for me. He would lis­ten to my com­plaints, then give me sim­ple, con­crete sug­ges­tions. “Move out from under the bas­ket,” “keep your hands up,” “hus­tle down the court.” The answers were not sexy, dif­fi­cult or nec­es­sar­i­ly what I want­ed to hear, but they worked. I got out of my funk and my game improved. He remind­ed me not to over­think my situation.
What are two or three things you can focus on dur­ing first quar­ter of this new year? What worked well for you last year?
We need team most when we can’t find the bas­ket. If you stick togeth­er, focus on the basics and cre­ate sim­ple, exe­cutable steps, your game is sure to improve!
Action Step
Review last year’s wins. As you look through the stat sheet, what stands out? Recre­at­ing what worked in the past is the eas­i­est and sim­plest way to get the nee­dle mov­ing for­ward to ensure a great 2017.
