Habits + Strength = Success. Are you there yet?

November is knocking. Are you ready to start building habits and strength? Successful people are simply those with successful habits.

As we have discussed, talent is what you do well, while habits is what you do well without thought. Skills are what you do well without thought while under stress.

There are seven parts of the swing and it takes 3,000 reps to build a habit:

  1. Stance/Load
  2. Timing
  3. Tempo
  4. Tracking
  5. Approach
  6. Contact
  7. Extension/Finish

That’s 21,000 reps.

What parts of the swing need the most attention this winter during your habit building workouts? For the remainder of October, focus on trying new things, which will help determine what works and what doesn’t.

Remember, skills pay the bills.
