January is always tough in the NBA. Long road trips to cold places, almost half the season completed, but still many games ahead. It is mentally and physically draining. Your body hurts after 5 games in 7 nights. Some days it's tough to keep going, giving your all. How do you find that All-Star performance when you can barely remember what city you’re in?

Have you ever felt like this? Trying to figure out how to keep going or get it going again after the end of a big year?
When I felt my game slipping a bit, when I couldn’t grab a rebound or find an open shot, I'd call my junior college coach Tom Lubin, sometimes at 3 am! He had given me my start and was always there for me. He would listen to my complaints, then give me simple, concrete suggestions. "Move out from under the basket,” “keep your hands up,” "hustle down the court." The answers were not sexy, difficult or necessarily what I wanted to hear, but they worked. I got out of my funk and my game improved. He reminded me not to overthink my situation.

What are two or three things you can focus on during first quarter of this new year? What worked well for you last year? 

We need team most when we can’t find the basket. If you stick together, focus on the basics and create simple, executable steps, your game is sure to improve!
Action Step
Review last year’s wins. As you look through the stat sheet, what stands out? Recreating what worked in the past is the easiest and simplest way to get the needle moving forward to ensure a great 2017.
