    Default The 3 E's of Badminton

    Got this from an 'old-man' of badminton.

    He told me is a nutshell success in badminton depends on the 3 E's.

    1st. Excel
    To become a good player.

    2nd. Exceed
    To surpass your opponents level and ability

    3rd. Expose
    To destroy your opponent by surfacing their hidden insecurities

    aren't those the reason why we are discussing LD vs LCW instead to jug8man vs Cheung?

    The key to badminton MDT
    1. Motivation
    2. Drive
    3. Tactics
    It just doesn't sound as good as the 3Es does it?

    And there I was, thinking:

    1. Ecstasy
    2. Epinephrine
    3. Enemas


    <-- Smiley face to indicate my actual "drugs are bad, mmmkay" attitude as a responsible role-model to children and vulnerable adults.

    Spreadsheets are useful in everyday life

    2nd. Exceed
    Play beyond your capabilities... don't worry about injuries.

    3rd. Expose
    Wear revealing clothing while playing, let it all hang out

    I prefer ELM (more responsible coaching):

    - Effort: always give 100%
    - Learn: the process of getting to the top is worth more than the outcome
    - Mistakes: they are ok, if we can learn from them

    The 3E's are not about coaching.

    It's what a player himself must attain himself to reach 'That Level'.

    It is an on going process, a life long playing journey. Far beyond the realm of tutorship.

    regarding your item#2. playing beyond your own abilities.... don't worry about injuries...
