Work That Work’s

Work! Work! Work! It is comfortable to just do work. Anyone can do work and look busy but is your work actually working? Is it productive? Are you digging a deeper hole or making progress toward a goal? How do you know? As a coach this an important question to ask daily. Your athletes may be getting better in spite of the work not because of it. It is easy to get trapped into just doing stuff because it seems relevant at the time, but after taking a step back and putting it is context it may just be making the athletes tired not better. The answer is to focus on priority areas that will make the athletes better, no fluff, just absolute need to do activities that are manageable, measurable and motivational. Ironically sometimes what you are not doing can also have a profound influence. Listen to the advise of Francis of Assisi:

“Start by doing what is necessary; then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.”
