Over time, we sometimes develop bad habits. Or, at times, we could develop better habits. This is applicable on the field, on the court, in the office, or in life. Creating better technique and better habits was a constant battle for me on the softball field as a student-athlete, and now I continue to struggle with it in my current role as an entrepreneur-attorney-author-coach-athlete.

To create better habits, we generally need to go back to the basics. We need to break down the bad habits, and then build from the ground up, establishing good or better habits one building block at a time. This can be a frustrating process, and it often feels as if we take a giant step back. New habits and new muscle memory are uncomfortable at first. It feels foreign and, frankly, almost like failing. However, stay the course. Sometimes it takes one step backward to go two steps forward. Trust the process and focus on the progress.
