The longer and longer I’m doing things and exploring different subjects and topics, the thing that most find the hardest to do is to simplify, and yet to be able to simplify is the thing which brings the greatest results and rewards.
Recently, I’ve just finished reading a book called Simplify by Richard Koch & Greg Lockwood
And everything I do in my coaching, I’m looking to simplify, how do you get more bang for your buck, or in other words, how do you get more output for less input.
And one thing I’ve discovered is that if one really wants to begin to simplify, it’s all about understanding core aspects and the keys to what ones does.
And to simplify coaching and to start becoming more effect at what one does, a couple of key aspects are to:
Activating the self-motivated learner
And everything else about coaching builds out from these 2 aspects.
And the biggest thing about sport, is that there are so many areas that can be simplified, for example, if one wants to accelerate the learning and development process, begin understanding how the brain learns and retains information and what motivates people, then one can build player development around that.
For to simplify things appears to be one of the hardest things that people can do, mainly because our society is built on complexity, but when you look at things like nature, it may look complex, but at its heart is simplicity and one only has to look at something like the Mandelbrot set to see this in action.
So if one can put into effect a few simple repeating patterns, you will create, what looks on the outside, a complex structure, but is nothing more than simplicity repeating itself
