Hey Team- 

As many of you know, I have my book, Habits of a Champion coming out next month...

Writing was tough... but the editing has been grueling... 

Spending over 8 hours yesterday at my desk making sure everything is structured, formatted, and aligned the way I want... so all that read can take their game to Champion status!

So how does a type A, self diagnosed attention deficit disorder person get themselves to sit at a computer that long?


Habits and routines. I trained for it. How you ask?

I made a deal with myself on Sunday night. I told myself, from now on, since I will be spending extra time at the computer working during the day, rather than being on-field, I will need to train hard every morning.

Conditioning. Foam Rolling for my soft tissue work. Core. Weight Training. Stretching. Positive Self-Talk and Coaching.

All catalyzed by an ice coffee from a new place I found here in Connecticut, Donut Delight.

What is amazing, is that when you get up and train from 6am-7:15am, by 8am you feel very accomplished. Workout complete. Caffeine working. Fed. Showered. Ready to go. 8:15am at the computer ready to work.

Full day by 8am... putting myself first. I always get the first position since I need the more energy so I have more to give...

I encourage you to do the same...

Start your day with a plan and an action strategy...

Hit the ground running... or walking.. or crawling... whatever you have to do... but make sure it is planned and structured... a strong morning routine to get you going...

The feeling of accomplishment is second to none. It sets the tone for the day...

It is a winning formula. A Champion minded formula... give it a try!




This was a true passion write for me. Lessons from top performing athletes and business leaders designed to keep you motivated, inspired, and taking action!  And... the foreword is by MLB Manager, JOE GIRARDI!
