Happy Monday! Here are a few thoughts bouncing around in my head after a week of reading, podcasts and other continuing ed. Enjoy!
- “The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” – George Bernard Shaw. In strength and conditioning, we need more unreasonable coaches trying to progress the field forward in a positive manner.
- Coach the first person, then coach the athlete.
- A lot of coaches think that the coaches that put themselves out there are sellouts or that they always have their phones out and aren’t coaching. I don’t think that could be any further from the truth. It takes 10 seconds to take your phone out and get a video of something. I think that if you think you have something of value to offer other coaches you are doing them a disservice by not sharing.
