How often are we fully engaged with where we are and with what we need to do?
When was the last time you found yourself fully immersed in fun? Or remember a time when the hours flew by and the world around you disappeared? Whether it was playing with toys as children, or playing a game as an individual or part of a team, there was a time in our lives when playing was not only expected... it was encouraged!

Today's world contains so many incredible technologies that can put absolutely anything we could want to see, hear or read one click away. We are always connected to family, friends, information, news, music, shows, etc. The list can literally go on and on. The capabilities and rewards of our world today is incredible, but what is the cost? Let's be real - nothing 'that good' is truly free... The cost, while sounding innocent enough, is a steep one - the cost is the present moment.
In life as in sports, we spend most of our time practicing and putting in the reps to be ready when it’s time to perform. It’s that time and hard work that allows us to EXECUTE in the moment rather than thinking through the steps and mechanics of the task at hand.
