Philosophical you say, nope, just think about things, and by doing so, one ends up becoming Philosophical as a result, and of course that spills over into one’s sports coaching, for the two go hand in hand.
For if one looks at and thinks about things long enough, patterns and principles begin to emerge from the clutter of all the details, for example:
All coaching is trial and error and 90% of coaching sport is fitness, core skills, playing structure and understanding people and we spend 90% of our time developing the other 10%
When it comes to sport, the core is king because within the core is the seed of playing sport well, and to produce a cohesive environment, leave one’s needy behaviour at the door, that includes me as the coach, and yourselves as the players
Sport is competitive
Sport is about change
If I lose, it’s my incentive to get better
If I win, it’s my drive for improvement to
Therefor I will
Act like the champion
Train like the newbie
Play like the underdog
And all the while align myself
with the success aspects of sport
And once one can begin to see the patterns and principles, then one can begin to organize the details to enhance what they do.
And once on sees the patterns and principles, one’s perception and the way they apply and approach things begins to change
