Make Time

As a basketball player or coach, you may often feel overwhelmed. It can be tough to balance school, practice, games, and quality time with your family and friends. It may seem difficult to fit everything in and feel like you are in complete harmony.

Know this – you will never find time for anything. You have to make time for the things that are important to you. If you truly love something… you will make the time for it. Time is never the problem… after all… each of us gets 24 hours in a day. Lack of passion and focus is the real problem.

When a player or coach tells me they ‘don’t have time to do something… I know they simply don’t want it bad enough. Whether it’s reading a motivational book, getting in a strength workout, having a nice dinner with your family, or making an extra 250 shots after practice… you have to make the time. ‘Not enough time’ is just a convenient excuse.

Great players and great coaches get more out of their 24 hours than their competition does.

Thanks for reading, time to get back in the gym.
