Bring It In is a coaching-focused column by Keith Raynor.

I’ve been working for Ultiworld since 2013 and have done a lot of interviews with coaches and players. One of the most common concepts — to the point of feeling trite — is focusing on the process rather than the outcome. But like focusing on what you can control (which ties in with process vs. outcome), some things are popular because they work. For those who aren’t converts, let’s talk about how and why it works.
