Daily Dose of Coach #288: Focus on Progress

Ryan Faer is a strength and conditioning coach in the Cleveland Indians organization. He also happened to be my intern a few years back. In my opinion, he's one of the best up and coming strength and conditioning professionals, especially with regards to high school baseball.

I wanted to share a Tweet he sent out yesterday with you. It resonates with my beliefs on performance and development as not just an athlete but a human being.

The battle must be fought everyday.

The second we stop focusing our efforts on progress, then that's when we inevitably struggle the most.

As long as were living, there's a chance to fight; for growth, for personal success, for happiness.

One of my favorite sayings is "you're either getting better or you're getting worse." Nothing is motionless or stagnant. We do best when we are focusing our efforts on improvement and find struggle when we stop. Keep moving, keep improving, keep fighting the battle every single day.
