Improving time management will be one of the best ways you can improve as a player.
The first step is eliminating stuff from your day, week or month that is not productive– too much time on social media, too many hours playing video games, etc. You don’t need to entirely cut these things from your week, but learn to make better use of your time than being on Instagram all day! Instagram won’t get you a scholarship! Ask yourself: “Will this help me get closer to my dream of playing college sports?” Deactivate your social media accounts or limit yourself to one day a week for video games if necessary.
View these “sacrifices” as investments. Understand that you will be gaining from making these sacrifices, by improving as a player or gaining more interest from college coaches. Sacrifices = INVESTMENTS!
Secondly, evaluate all your activities and decide if you are doing too much. Are you spreading yourself too thin, especially in the areas that are most important and enjoyable to you?
Finally, are you getting enough sleep? Running around tired all day will not help you be productive! Going to bed early each night will make your tomorrow’s more efficient!
