Fear

They say “do one thing every day that scares you.” Actually Eleanor Roosevelt said that. Jumping into Corner Pocket on Sunday scared me, but I did it any way and executed it perfectly. In powder, it would not have been an issue, but this was onto hard pack. The fear was good because it made me plan ahead.

Sports seem so straight forward – especially individual sports – train hard, get better. A real career is a lot less cut and dry. I’m 33 and still have no idea what I want to be when I grow up. It can be incredibly frustrating. I’m going to try to heed the advice in this article. But wouldn’t it be nice if I could just train and get results? I think that’s why I used to like math, but I never liked math as much as sports.
