A comment from Tiger Woods prior to a June U.S. Open round was very telling relative to language and how it affects actions.

While most athletes talk about warming up, preparing, or getting ready, Tiger described his pre-round activities as “rehearsal.” And rather than simply hitting golf balls, he rehearses specific shots he expects to face during the course of a round. That’s a far cry from warming up, and his results obviously reflect that.

Take a lesson here and let’s all ask ourselves – How do I get ready for the important activities (both personal and professional) in my life? Do I warm up or do I rehearse?
