ATHLETE'S TIP JAR
What is the best advice you have ever received?
Always see the positive in every situation; things are how they are, its in our power to understand them how we want.
What is the first thing you do when arriving to a new team or arena?
Team: I look forward to the first couple of practices so I can see how the coach is working with the team, so I can understand their perspective.
Arena: I check out the lights, they can be disturbing sometimes
What personal habit do you believe has contributed most to your success?
When I start something, I really want to finish it.
Sleep & Morning ritual:
I sleep between 8-10 hours; I have breakfast, coffee/tea, I am up a few hours before practice, on the court half an hour before doing warm up/ mobility exercises.
What is one way you’d like to improve yourself?
Always try to learn something new, reading books
How do you cross-train to stay fit when you aren’t playing your sport?
I go swimming a few times a week
What is one book you would give away as a gift and why?
The Obstacle is the Way by Ryan Holiday; I would give this book to anyone who is struggling with something in life, sports, business, etc.
If you had a do-over, knowing everything you know now with all of the new resources (Beyond Athletic Podcasts, ESS Mentors, etc.) ,what would you have done differently and why?
I think things would have happened quicker for me, after listening to other’s experiences on a podcast, I would have learned a lot quicker.
