We don't know what we have to win. And nobody else knows, either. Despite what all those people who get paid to act like they know, they don't know. The selection committee knows who's going to be in the tournament. Or they will know. They're the only people who really know.

You go through periods where you start to rush and all the sudden it shows up. You have to work on it, get that under control and wait for the next thing to pop up.
