One Good Turn Creates Another… 
Look to the start to correct your delivery errors

I spent last Friday watching 7.5 hours of discus at the Mt SAC Relays in the 90 degree sun.

A curious thing struck me while seeing throwers and their coaches communicating to each other from the stands and the infield with arm, hand and body gyrations and a few short words.

Usually they were showing how the left shoulder was pulling down and away during delivery.
Sometimes the coach’s upper body would jack knife forward indicating an upper body throw.
Then they would stop and push their right hip ahead of the shoulder indicating the correct delivery.
Occasionally the thrower would indicate a scooping motion with the arm.

But… They were all focused on the delivery of the discus. 

No one focused on the start at the back of the circle! 


The start is where the errors are generated.

Fix the back and the delivery will be correct.
Pulling away on delivery is the result of being off balance to the left at the back of the circle, NOT fighting too hard at the front with the left arm.
It’s a natural consequence, you can’t avoid it.

If you are ON BALANCE at the back it will be very difficult if not impossible to deliver incorrectly.
If you are OFF BALANCE at the back it will be very difficult if not impossible to deliver correctly.

What you do at the Back 
of the circle

you MUST Repeat at the Front

Eliminate the Root Cause of the Problem 
at the back of the circle.

There is a reason why I bought a Mac, it was not to be one of the cool kids that wanted the best of the best. No it was because of the music production I do on it. Hours and hours sitting in front of my Mac copying, pasting, moving, deleting, hour after hour just beating on my Mac in a endless assault to get my work done. That is the key part, my work. I work from home, it is great, but even if it is from home it is still work and it still needs to get done. So my Mac, I have it because it is fast, gets the job done and comes back for more.

But what happens when it doesn't want to do those things anymore?

I move around massive amounts of information and yes even on the almighty Mac this can cause a problem after a while. Things fragment, programs get corrupted issues come up. My light speed Mac slows down to a crawl and all of the sudden I simply can not get any work done. Because I work from home there is no IT guy to call and ask to come fix it. No instead I have to figure out what is wrong. I am lucky, I did, but not after trying everything under the sun first and wasting countless hours looking for one program that can do what I needed instead of ten programs. One program to lead them all….okay that was a lame Lord of the rings reference, but that program was/is Detox My Mac. A simple to use program that did not just fix my issues, it put my Mac on overdrive again. A few clicks and my Mac was clean and ready to rock and roll again.
