“Basketball is a complex dance that requires shifting from one objective to another at lightning speed. To excel, you need to act with a clear mind and be totally focused.” – Phil Jackson
If you want to maximize your play on the court you have to learn how to ‘Play Present.’ There are as many as 150 individual plays over the course of a game (roughly half on offense and half on defense). The best players in the world are totally focused on the present moment – because that is all they can control.
Great players don’t worry about a missed shot or a bad call. They don’t get distracted by trying to think about winning and losing. They focus on the here and now. They ‘Play Present.’
