In Preparation for meeting Cindy- I am posting one of her Pet Peeves in her own words. ( mine too, actually)
I Work Harder Than You – As someone who gives tons of lessons every week, this is my biggest pet peeve! I love to work hard, but when it comes to making you better, I don’t feel like I should be working harder at it than you. After all, it’s YOUR lesson. I’m not talking about players that make mistakes during lessons, or aren’t feeling good or might be sore – all of those things are normal and will happen throughout a season. I’m talking about the player that comes to lessons without any of the 3 E’s – Energy or Enthusiasm or Effort. They just complain the entire time, about how hot it is (its summer in Florida!), how bad they’re doing, how bad their team is, or how tired they are. I won’t let them complain, but I also won’t allow myself to work harder at getting them better than they’re working at it. I know you’re not that player, but start being more aware of your 3 E’s; your Energy, your Effort & your Enthusiasm and bring all of them with you everywhere you go – including lessons!
BTW- if you are not getting her free updates from Softballexcellence.com, you are missing a valuable free resource.
