When searching for solutions to a problem It is not WHAT is the matter, that is evident, rather focus on WHAT MATTERS. In order to get meaningful results from training and competition it is imperative to focus on what matters. It is how you do what you do when you do it that counts.
Never discount passion and emotion, as they are integral parts of the human spirit.
Coach and teach with passion and emotion based on knowledge and reason that is what really matters. It is amazing how problems will then be minimized and when they do occur the solutions will be much clearer.
Short Term Thinking
If you only think of the short term and immediate results from training something will always be missing in the long term. Short-term thinking yields immediate results and long term stagnation. Always consider potential second and third order effects. What happens when the initial training effect wears off? Now what? Think process and big picture. Training is cumulative.
