Its too hot. My toe hurts. I don’t have time….nobody wants to hear. Just figure it out.
Be the guy that only has to be told something once and that does his best to make that adjustment immediately. Sometimes it can be difficult to make adjustments that the coach is asking you to make because it feels awkward or different than what you are used to. This is natural.
