Is your strategy only 2 dimensional?
Thursday, May 26, 2011
It struck me as I lost yet another tennis match that I'm really limiting my chances by being 2 dimensional, when I could become 3 dimensional, in my approach to the game.
By over-relying on groundstrokes (forehand/backhand), I'm hardly ever exploiting volleys, smashes (aka overheads), lobs, and drop-shots. All these shots are crucial for a well-rounded player, yet when I attempt them, I often flunk them through lack of mastery and practice of these shots.
I've finally resolved to master these vital shots so I can exploit the very frequent situations they're designed for. Can't wait to see the results!
Are you being 2 dimensional in any aspect of your goals? For instance, if you want to lose weight, exclusive focus on nutrition with little emphasis on exercise is certainly 2 dimensional and will massively limit your chances. And vice versa (all exercise, poor eating).
