Why success leaves you clues

What batting average do you want to end the spring 2023 season with? How many home runs would you like to have?

Did you know that it takes 3,000 reps to build a habit?

There are seven parts to the swing that include:

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

Seven parts of the swing times 3,000 reps is 21,000 reps.

What gets measured gets improved. I suggest you keep track of every rep you take November through January so you will be confident to compete in the spring.

That way your bat is booming while the flowers are blooming.

Okay, now here’s your homework:

  • Get notebook paper and a pencil.
  • Create a graph with seven columns.
  • Each column will represent one of the seven parts mentioned above.
  • Start tracking your reps today through the end of January for each part.
