Sunday Setting Sights on Success Tip of the Day When in Doubt

I have seen many baseball players not sure of what to do it at times. They are in a great hitting or pitching groove and some continue to practice and work hard when others take a break until the groove ends. There are two ways to look at this situation:

One, "Hey, if it ain't broke there is nothing to fix," so leave well enough alone and do not practice for a period, so they do not the risk changing a good thing.

Two, on the other hand, the hard work is what got one in to the groove, so why stop working?

Tough call, but when in doubt, and especially when there is no mental or physical fatigue at risk, go with option two keep working. The peace of mind knowing that you are doing all you can is generally the best way to go. However, if that method seems to backfire, learn from it, and try a new approach the next time a hot groove comes.
