#120- Are You Protecting Your Journey?

Happy 2023. We are going to get right back into the swing of things.

First: are you protecting your pickleball journey?

You have agency over what you allow to come into your journey – use the agency.

We give you some tips to help you keep the barbarians at the gate (good book if you are looking for one).

In the riff we discuss achievability.

Perhaps you have objectives that you want to achieve in pickleball. That is great – but it helps for you to know that you can achieve those objectives. Add “achievability” to your 2023 vocabulary.

    What does riff stand for in your podcasts? I just started listening to them.

      Hi Sherry, think of it like a musical riff. At end of each podcast Tony does a short segment where he talks about a topic of interest. Enjoy!

    Tony, many months ago CJ (I think CJ) talked about counting strokes in a rally. I never got past 5 that day.
    I have worked on getting 5-6 without much luck. Now with your system working on reaching the objectives I feel I know why and what I am doing. However this morning, I can not control my partner or my opponents. I just keep hitting my shots. It is funny that many clap at a long rally but the next rally is back to 1-2 – Smash?
