Getting better should be the goal
Except, and it’s a big exception
Getting better means you first have to admit you are wrong.
Full disclosure: I used to think that going full depth on a push up was bad for your shoulders, period.
There’s a whole bunch of boring stuff about that, I argued my position and I made sense
However, it doesn’t really make sense, if the body can do something then why not do it?
You just have to make sure you are preparing the body properly first, yadda yadda yadda
The point is, I was wrong, and to become a better coach, I had to admit that to myself
That’s hard work, admitting you are wrong is difficult work, it can emotionally draining
Partly because you’re probably wrong about a lot of things
Which is scary, UNLESS your focus isn’t on being right, but being better
Being right is kind of like the search for perfection, it gets you stuck
In fact, it’s actually a bad thing, if you’re right all the time, then that’s it, you can’t get any better
You are what you are and there’s nowhere to go
Don’t know about you, but that sounds terrifying to me
At least if you can sit back and acknowledge you might be wrong then you have a way to improve
If you’re wrong, then of course there is a better way
And that’s exciting
Have a think about an area of your life you care about, where you are wrong right now
Awesome, now get better
