Monday Finish: Mitchell used underdog role as motivation – PGA TOUR

Monday Finish: Mitchell used underdog role as motivation – PGA TOUR

Motivation
On arguably the toughest non-major course on the PGA TOUR, Keith Mitchell birdies four of the last seven holes, including a clutch putt from 15 1/2 feet at the last, to break through for his first win at The Honda Classic. Welcome to the Monday Finish, where Mitchell dominated from tee to green, held his nerve, and shot up 85 spots to 17th in the FedExCup. FIVE OBSERVATIONS 1. Mitchell used ‘no-name’ quip as fuel. Not many people had Mitchell winning The Honda Classic before the tournament began, and for good reason. His last top-10 finish before Sunday: a T7 at the John Deere Classic last July. Heck, people couldn’t even get his name right. Baseball fans who recall a certain former San Francisco Giants third baseman sometimes call him Kevin Mitchell. Undaunted, t...

The Perfect Workday Hours to Maximize Motivation Calendar  Follow | Monday, 04 March 2019 12:29 (EST) What are the perfect workday hours to maximize your motivation? For me, it depends and varies based on the day. We’ve been working eight hours a day since Robert Owen coined the slogan, “Eight hours labour, eight hours recreation, eight hours rest,” back in the 18th Century. Today, the average American works 8.8 hours a day.It turns out, however, that working this much every day isn’t beneficial. One study found that a six-hour work day increases productivity. While another study found that employees sh...

Meek Mill’s ‘Motivation Tour’ Stop In LA Proved He Hasn’t Lost A Step After His Long Absence – UPROXX

Motivation
Getty Image Meek Mill hasn’t been on a tour since 2017, thanks to the machinations of the criminal justice system and one judge in Philadelphia who Meek and his attorneys say held a personal grudge against him throughout his case. But it’s safe to say, I think, that performing on stage is like riding a bike — at least, that’s how it looked Thursday night at the Hollywood Palladium for the Los Angeles stop of Meek’s Motivation Tour. The Championships rapper hasn’t lost a step or his flair for dramatic guest reveals and fiery, charismatic sets that take full advantage of his powerful voice and preference for thunderous, driving beats. Some of that continued onstage comfort undoubtedly comes from Meek’s willingness to give the fans what they want. ...
