Feel it…

Skill. Passion. Effort. The three pillars of performance according to science both old and new. Does. Not. Tell. The. Whole. Story.

The athlete, just like the entrepreneur, must develop a feel for the game. I’m not convinced this can be taught. You certainly have to build skill which cannot be done, consistently, without passion and effort. Becoming one of the best takes a bit more. You feel it and oftentimes it’s unexplainable. Think about it. You cannot reason yourself into flow (optimum performance state). It just happens and you feel it.

Study. Learn. Apply. Build deliberate practice disciplines. And, play with it. Go off script. Experiment. Fail. Have fun. Take risks. Loosen the grip and let it rip. Feel it. Damn.

Live hard. Love harder…
