The last 5
The first 5 are important.
The first 5 minutes of training sets the tone for whole session. The first 5 things you do when you wake up helps determine the day. The first 5 thoughts in your head are enough to build a pattern of thought. The first 5 words spoken or read determine the receivers receptiveness.
But the last 5 are more important. The last 5 reps, or the last 5 moves in training, or the last 5 minutes of your work day... you carry that momentum from one day or training to next one.
- Smashed the last 5 pull ups
- Planned tomorrow's sessions
- "Hey John, well done today"
Nail the last 5 and when you turn up next time, there is a belief that you will have carried with you between sessions that grows confidence and excellence.
