Simple but Not Easy: Short-term Memory

Hello Everyone!

Recently I wrote about the simple, but not easy concept of showing up. Another example of this concept is having a short-term memory.

To be a good athlete you have to have the ability to stay in the present moment, aka, a short-term memory.

Whether it's forgetting about the missed easy lay-up, the missed block, the missed snatch in the weight room, or any other athletic skill that you didn't execute like you could/should have - you have to have a short-term memory.

Being a great athlete means remember that athletics (and the training that goes along with it) are a series of events that end. They are not things that define who you are as an athlete or person.
The ability to clear your mind and stay in the game (or workout session) is what will allow you to have a great athletic career that you can be proud or.

So the next time you miss something, forget about it!

Keep Training!
