Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Old Kickers in the NFLI came across an article about football kickers in today's paper. Apparently this season has been especially good for older kickers in the NFL. Here's a quote that caught my eye:
Older kickers, he said, “stick to a plan that works for them and they don’t deviate from it.”
He added, “They plan their work and they work their plan.”
The trick is to be smart (i.e. to know what works), disciplined (i.e. plan the work and work the plan), healthy, and strong.
Get those 4 things right and you'll probably do well in just about any sport. The trick is to get all 4. It's pretty easy to get 2 out of the 4. Lots of older orienteers are smart and disciplined, but injured and weak. Lots of young orienteers are healthy and strong, but not smart or disciplined.
Most of the exceptions are, I suspect, the older orienteers who manage to stay healthy and strong or the young orienteers who manage to be smart and disciplined.

Very True! A well-planned and disciplined team always have the big chance of winning. Everytime I watch any sport game, I always look how the team plan and implement their game plan or strategies.Post a Comment
