💪 Double down on your strengths 

Whew! Now that we’re in the final games of the World Cup group stage, things are getting really interesting. 

That USA game yesterday against Iran? Forget about it. 

Great result as we’re moving to the knockout state. But the part that drove me bats*** crazy was that we were controlling play with 20+ minutes when our coach decided to substitute defenders who barely hung on. 

Our best defense yesterday was our offense. 

And I’m a big believer in doubling down on your strengths. 

Whenever I talk about this – I usually get the same question: 

“How can I do this with my fitness and golf?” 

Here’s two examples to illustrate: 

Scenario #1: You’re consistently lifting weights 3 times per week and getting strong. 

You could: 

1) Add an additional day of lifting. Or… 

2) Start jogging once a week. 

It has been my experience that guys who gravitate toward weights, don’t like running. So, they skip it. And waste a training/exercise/movement day. 

Scenario #2: You’re getting an A in math, but a C in English class. 

You could: 

  1. Keep expanding your knowledge of math to a deeper level. 
  1. Get an English tutor so you can just get by. 

AND that is what’s wrong with our current education system. 

Doubling down on your strengths leads to quick wins. 

Each win leads to other opportunities that are within your circle of competence

Not to mention if you’re good at something, you genuinely enjoy it. 

For the rest of this week, avoid the temptation to stray from your strengths because you think it’s “what you’re supposed to do.” 

Instead, lean into your strengths.
