Put in or piss off...was one of the mantra's of my under 16's footy coach. At the time it was a bit of a shock to hear and in many ways I had no idea what this thirty something ancient oldie with a giant moustache was babbling about. Fast forward thirty years and I now realise he was right. I've tried so many shortcuts over the years from leaving things to the last minute, winging it on the night or simply giving up. It's really only been in the last 15 months since I stopped drinking (is their a link...me thinks yes!) that I understand that nothing does or can replace hard work. Now I tell my kids this and they stare back at me like I'm speaking Wookie.
