Interesting notes. Simplicity and just shows that there are no great secrets out there. Choice of language interesting as well - repeated use of the word 'try'. Use of this word can elicit doubt. Better (in my opinion) to eliminate 'try' from your vocabulary.
'give your best' 'Dictate the points' 'Keep him at the baseline make him move'
Far more intentional even if it doesn't happen all the time!
