Mike Kryzyzewski has been a highly successful basketball coach at Duke University. Like any coach of winning teams in any sport or competition, he uses techniques that apply to any endeavor, including Academic Games.
He teaches young players to be more engaged in each moment rather than the one just past or the one coming up. Play more instinctively and without fear of making mistakes. Don’t let fear of failure cause you to fail. Prepare well and trust your preparation to carry you to success.
