Last week I wrote about the epiphany I had of focusing on loving to win versus hating to lose and how I savored a great forehand that I hit playing in a tennis tournament even though I lost. This led me to focus much more on the satisfaction of that great forehand versus what I didn’t do well or on the mistakes I made.
A couple of weekends ago, I played in a tennis tournament. Then on the following Monday evening, I played doubles from 5:00 to 6:30, followed by a clinic from 7:00 to 8:30. Proving there’s no rest for the weary, the next morning, I had a training session from 6 to 7 and then played singles from 8:00 to 9:30.

I also had a couple of insights that I applied toward the end of the year that I will target to discuss in next week’s blog.

I had the distinct pleasure to once again attend the last three days of the BNP Paribas tennis tournament at Indian Wells.

I love to observe the players in action to study how they approach their craft and adapt to different situations,
For whatever reason, I was really struggling with what to write this week. Yes, I admit that this does happen. I then started reflecting on the previous week and one of the attention-grabbing events and there was one that particularly impacted my kids, especially my daughter.

It goes without saying that we should strive to build up and sustain the good ones and avoid or eliminate the counterproductive ones.
A few years ago I did 23andMe. I was not only curious about my ancestry but what medical risks might be present based on my DNA. Fortunately, I don’t appear to be predisposed to any serious ailments. Over the course of its many years in business,
There is no doubt that technological innovation has automated more tasks and this will only become more pronounced with the greater use of artificial intelligence and robotics.
