"I know nothing."

Title quoted from Socrates, Philosopher

Happy New Year lax lovers!  As the new year begins, many people, such as myself, take the time to reflect on who they are, their goals for the year, and how they can improve themselves (all you regular gym goers can see the difference in January).  You achieve those goals by learning how you will get there, finding the best route, then sticking to that course.  This is harder for some than for others, but attainable for all.

A discussion with a colleague spurned this post when we were talking about another colleague (shh, don’t tell) and he said, “Well, he’s a classic know-it-all.  And you know what, the smartest people I know are also the humblest people I know.”

Some of you may be thinking, how does this apply to stringing lacrosse sticks?  I’ll tell you why – because if you think you know everything, you may be missing out on something great.  Be humble and listen.  Listen to novice 6 year old’s and professional 30 year old’s and retired 70 year old’s alike.  They could have the key to unlock your stringing mastermind!  By admitting you don’t know it all, you keep your mind open to new ideas and the ability to find the best path to achieve your goals.

Stay focused and keep improving!  HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!

Here’s a song that makes me feel creative and contemplative, maybe you’ll like it too:

Lacrosse Playground

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
