This quote is included in a section called “Life” in the 11-page “Liskevych Philosophy,” which he put together while coaching the USA team.

Reflect on it next time you’re coming home from volleyball practice and have to research and write a 10-page paper that’s due first thing in the morning. Put that way, “enemy” sounds about right, doesn’t it? Source

Accept that there is a learning curve at every level. There is no fast forward button even in practice to simulate what it is like for games. Trust that you will struggle at first and that you will improve.
