Performance Driving Tip

Off-Season Preparation

My favorite quote of all time reportedly comes from Albert Einstein (some research claims he never did say it – at least not exactly like that – but it’s still a great quote!). He said, “A sure sign of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting something to change.”

So what are you doing this off-season to prepare for the 2016 season? Anything different from last year, or the year before that?

Are you satisfied with how you performed this past season? If so – and you don’t want to perform better in 2016 – going about your off-season preparation the way you did last year is a good strategy. But if you want to improve, what are you going to do differently?

  • Study video and data?
  • Use mental imagery to develop your techniques?
  • Work with a coach?
  • Practice (legally) on the street?
  • Take a driving school?
  • Use a driving simulator?
  • Attend a seminar?
  • Start a physical fitness program?
  • Read a book?
  • Develop and use a mental training program?
  • Or?

If you do want to perform even better next year, now’s the time to start preparing. And begin by doing a little self-assessment, then planning. Oh, and then do it (don’t forget this last part).

Have fun!
