Good article--keep 'em coming, although you're going to get some crap from folks who don't like clicking on other climber's blogs, even though the info is all climbing related.

I am establishing my pre-climbing ritual.

Ties shoes
Recognize a bit of anxiety
Breath deeply three times
Get to my first jug
settle into the climb

I am trying to use it irrespective of lead or follow, trad, bouldering or sport.

Seems to be helping me.

What happens if you are a top tier elite pro hardcore climber like me that doesn't do routes that have jugs?

Unless you mean the other use of the word jug in which case I'm actually all set Cool

In my constant worry that my worst fear (that someone actually takes me seriously) comes true, I'll add that I was being very much facetious.

Except about the man jugs. Those I do have.
