Process

It is so easy in coaching to get caught up in the outcome – The win in the game, a personal best run jump or throw. Sometimes we tend to forget that the outcome is a result of the process and the process takes time. The devil is in the details on the daily preparation and the focus in training. I do not mean to imply that that just by taking care of and focusing on the process that the outcome is assured. Far from it, the two are linked. You can’t put the cart before the horse. You cannot expect results in competition (outcomes) without taking care of the process. To make the process meaningful there must be a goal, the desired outcome. It is not real complicated but for some reason it is easy to have a disconnect between the two. Define the desired outcome and refine the process to achieve the desired goal.
