yeah, leeD, that was as much at dig at the people who rated him 4.0 as anything else

Personally, I can never get motivated by SMART goals... sure, they are useful for quarterly budget setting at work, but it isn't something that is going to get you out on the court when your body is aching and you know you have to ice and tape your feet after you play...

it's not going to get you to focus on finding that small adjustment that will allow you to half volley as you rush into the net after you've been at it for 45 minutes without success...
it's not going to give you the intensity to practice that backhand rally pattern for another half hour just so it is seared into your brain...

some people need to be inspired, they need a muse, they need to dream... otherwise, there is no purpose, no meaning, no challenge and no joy in the work and struggle...
