A coach is someone who can offer correction without causing resentment– John wooden
When I notice someone has been triggered, I stop.
My life goals do not require me to change other people.
Inverting, being prickly reduces the world’s ability to help us out.
If you struggle to learn from experience then ASK…
- What is it going to take for me to trust the process?
- What is it going to take for me to trust the coach?
For me, It was watching Nils & Johan take everything I learned about sport and make it better. I wanted to take my knowledge to the next level.
In February, one small choice by Johan, set off of positive chain that brought us together.
What’s it going to take for you?
If you have no idea then that’s OK!
Think back, who gets through to me, without resentment?
Combine with goals & VALUES alignment, and you have the ingredients for a valuable long-term relationship.
- My marriage
- My investment committee
- My close friends
- My board
All contain people who are able to get through to me. I am surrounded by elite coaches.
In our lives, we will come across people who have the capacity to make us want to improve, and the vision to make incremental suggestions that we can implement.
Pay attention when you feel their positive influence.
Johan’s 2022 Scorecard
- 5:2 Protocol / Radical Recovery
- Preemptive Recovery / Dynamic Loading (strong assist via @Alan_Couzens)
- Prehab for Running / Prevent Injury
- Our latest initiative is a break from Coffee (blog to come)
Each adjustment, I had been unable to implement previously.
Inside, I feel like I volunteered for all of them.
And I did.
But someone was the catalyst.
