I was asked a question earlier today which really caused me to pause and think….”How long have you been working on the book, See To Play?”
Many times, I’ve been asked the question, “How long did it take you to write your book?” The answer to that question is easy: five years.
I started this book five years ago. I wrote for six months and then, I stopped. It was too hard. I’m an eye doctor, not an author. I have a very important message, but who is going to read it?
I lost the faith. I lost the mojo. I stopped writing.
The next six months I continued to witness athletes reaching their genetic potentials by incorporating “vision” into their approach to excellence. I continued to be a part of the equation that helped high school athletes make the statically daunting jump to the collegiate level. I continued to help minor league baseball players make it to the show. I continued to help professional hockey players (who had just recently given me the opportunity to hoist the Stanley Cup over my head) be their best.
The problem was….I continued to witness athletes fall short of their goals and dreams..and I knew that their eyes, or their visual system, was their nemesis.
They could lift weights….they could run…they could skate...they could do all the batting practice they wanted….but they still couldn’t make it to the top.
It began gnawing at me again. The reason that had caused me to fall short of my athletic goal was still affecting athletes.
So,….I opened “THE BOOK” files again….and plodded along.
How long have I been working on “See To Play”?.....the year was 1981 when it hit me…I couldn’t see to play. I began working on the solution to that problem right away.
I thank all of you who are following me on this blog (which has now been over 1 year!), who are continually checking in on my website, who are my patients, who have already read the book…we’re in the final stage of the countdown. “See To Play” is getting ready for lift off. I can’t thank you enough!
Please continue to help me get the word out to help athletes perform at their genetic potential so they can reach their dreams!
For those of you just tuning in…welcome aboard!
ps....Happy Birthday Carson!
