For the vast majority of athletes, the coming weeks of self-isolation and time at home due to the effects of COVID-19 can feel very limiting. In this time that some people are viewing as negative, you can take the opportunity to change who you are and how you impact your game.

It is during a challenging period like this that Quantum Speed repeats one of its mottos: Champions are masters at navigating chaos and managing adversity.

“Suppose you were to come upon someone in the woods working feverishly to saw down a tree.
‘What are you doing?’ you ask.
‘Can’t you see?’ comes the impatient reply. ‘I’m sawing down this tree.’
‘You look exhausted!’ you exclaim. ‘How long have you been at it?’
‘Over five hours,’ he returns, ‘and I’m beat! This is hard work.’
‘Well, why don’t you take a break for a few minutes and sharpen that saw?’ you inquire. ‘I’m sure it would go a lot faster.’
‘I don’t have time to sharpen the saw,’ the man says emphatically. ‘I’m too busy sawing!’”

Right now, you are faced with an unprecedented amount of time you did not expect to have, which begs the question: What are you going to do to ‘sharpen your saw’?
