After returning from a two-week vacation, I am fully charged and ready for the summer to begin. Every once in a while every person deserves a break. This quick trip was a good way to clear my head, allowing me to evaluate the impact of all things in my life. Obviously basketball was a theme that arose multiple times.
I could write about the different reasons that I have continued to work within the game, whether at our current HSB camp in Houston, at Tufts, watching the NBA Finals, or any number of different basketball scenarios. My experience is unique and my love for the game has evolved over many hours of hard work leading to years of sometimes trying highs and lows.
The important question you should ask yourself during a break is why do you play the game. Look at those reasons and make sure they correctly align. Make sure the list leads to a better you, on and off the court. If your reasons conflict, work hard to adjust your outlook. This reevaluation could lead to a better experience in your playing, along with similar results in your life. Always be honest with the assessment and goal, and I promise you will learn more than you could have imagined.
