Sometimes you’re in the lead.
So you relax.
You start making jokes, losing your concentration, having mercy.
Suddenly the competition starts closing the gap.
You get a bit worried, tighten up, make a mistake.
Competition gets closer.
You start feeling panicky. You start making lots of mistakes.
Your competition goes by, waving.
That’s why you never relax.
When you’re ahead, you push on. Concentrate.
Be ruthless. Finish the game.
Don’t take your foot off his neck
