You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.
– Steve Jobs
Mentally, my key is just focusing on the little things I need to do in a race, whether that’s tempo, turn entry, start speed, things like that. I’m not thinking about that much before or during a race. I just trust in my ability and all the hard work I put in and let the race come to me.
