Work Harder and Smarter

Posted 26 May 2016 in Hitting Tips

Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.

We love that quote at Performance Plus. The most important traits an athlete can have don’t involve talent. Things like effort, coachability, sportsmanship, leadership, open-mindedness and commitment require zero talent at all. And these qualities are an integral part of what turns the world’s best athletes into champions.

We don’t want to take anything away from that quote, because it is great, but we also feel like we can add something more to it—

Smart work beats hard work when hard work doesn’t work smart.

Think about all of the science that goes into professional sports training. Millions and millions of dollars are spent every year on sports science. Everyone is trying to figure out how to use the latest technology to train more efficiently.

At Performance Plus, we are committed to making sure are athletes train hard and smart. We’re always collecting data and experimenting to see what works and what doesn’t. Along with relentless experimentation, we are constantly implementing the latest radar, video analysis, and exercise technology.

Another facet of working smart is setting detailed, motivational goals. Every time a P2 athlete begins a new monthly package, we sit down with them and write out a few measurable goals to work on during their sessions. We believe that when every athlete arrives at P2 for training, they should know exactly what they are trying to accomplish. No matter how hard you work, if you don’t come up with goals more specific than “get better,” you’re never going to reach your full potential.
