Forget motivation. It’s fickle and unreliable and isn’t worth your time. Better to cultivate habits than rely on motivation. Force yourself to do things. Force yourself to get out of bed and practice. Force yourself to work. Motivation is fleeting and easy to rely on because it requires no concentrated effort to get. Motivation comes to you, you don’t have to chase after it. Habits are reliable. Motivation is fleeting. The question isn’t how to stay motivated, it’s how to train yourself to work without it. #fasterhigherstronger #mybetterisbetter #pbcm #teamASICS #teamHEAD #smileelements #psaworldtour #squash #squashcanada #yycfitness #motivation #habits

Well, summer 2017 has officially come to a close, and along with it a season spent in the company of loved ones. I am so thankful for times like these, and although I still find myself wishing I was back on a dock soaking up the sun after morning training, I can’t help but be optimistic for the year to come. As I continue to push to become the best squash player I can be, the season is quickly becoming one of the busiest to date with tournaments scheduled in London (Ontario, not England), Montreal, Niagara Falls, Chicago, Cleveland, Hong Kong, and hopefully Marseille all before the new year! Furthermore, while I recently graduated with a BA in Psychology, school just doesn’t seem to go very far: I’m back at U of C on scholarship to obtain a MSc in Kinesiology. Specifically, I’ll be working on a project addressing LGBTQI2S inclusion in Canadian Sport. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity! Anyway, I just wanted to thank you all for your unwavering support and friendship along the way. It is true that we are a part of all whom we have met, and it makes me smile to think that this includes you. God Bless. #fasterhigherstronger
