Two very important lists exist around Christmas time: Santa's "Naughty or Nice" list and our own Christmas list. As a kid, our Christmas list was a huge deal. We wanted those items on that list really bad. We also wanted to make sure that Santa knew how much we wanted those items and that is why we put crayon to paper. As I grew up, my Christmas list lost it's purpose, for many reasons. However, I still want things. In athletics, we want things. A good routine to get into is to make a list. Make a list of things you want to accomplish and what you want to get better at. Add to the list. Work to achieve the things on the list. Check off those items on the list that you achieve. Add more stuff to the list. And don't complain if all you get in your stocking for Christmas is underwear and socks if you don't take the time to make a list of what you really want.
