The thing that drives anyone who wants to become good in what they do is, how can we make it simpler?
For different sports it could be, how can we make something go faster, or how can we make something lighter, all the same concept, it’s all about efficiency and effectiveness and making it simpler and ultimately, it’s all about those incremental little things.
Will it make the Boat Go faster – Ben Hunt Davis
For example, for coaching it could be:
How can I coach better?
How can I teach skills quicker?
How can I accelerate player development?
How can I make the coaching process easier to understand?
What are the key points to what I am doing?
What are the core aspects to what I am doing?
For though one is trying to make things simpler, this doesn’t mean simplistic, it means more effective
Or as a quote from Winston Churchill once said:
“I would have written you a short letter, but I didn’t have the time, so I wrote a long one instead”
Which actually means to be concise takes a bit of time and effort, but to ramble and to make things complicated takes a lot less effort, and hence why so few people can truly make things simple, and is where the asking of good questions comes in.
To make things simpler takes time, so invest the time to make things easier for yourself
