Getting better should be the goal

February 15, 2022

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

 

Found it? 

 

Awesome, now get better
