How do you approach your off-season, learning season, personal growth time, etc.? I can never go 60 to 0 at the end of the year. I enjoy helping friends who may still be playing, watching the game, and preparing for the next step almost right away. After some rest and re-connection with loved ones the grind starts back up. If you are like me, you can find yourself jumping from topic to topic without finishing things well before moving on. Following a zone offense rabbit trail while you’re supposed to be learning about and thinking about man can lead you back to the beginning without a lot done in either direction. I’ve put together a week by week calendar for the post season of topics of study and growth for myself. I’ve already had to snap myself back on target more than I’d like to admit. It’s important to remain flexible in pursuing what grabs our attention but some discipline in our study will yield better results. Having an outline will also help direct our thoughts in the first place. If your mind likes to wander like mine and you’ve not done so yet, give yourself some guidelines and guardrails as you start the long work of making yourself better for the next season.
