Foundational Beliefs #3 Focus on the Process – The Pursuit Of Excellence Has It?s Own Rewards
It is so easy to get caught with results either in training and competition and lose sight of the process. The process is the how, the means of getting to the desired end result. It has been my observation that those coaches who have lasting success are those that focus on the process. They realize that investment in the process is what produces consistent results in the long term. There is a clear distinction on training AS performance or training FOR performance. The later is absorbed in the process and pays the richest dividends. Focus on the process keeps everything in perspective, it not an all or nothing proposition like a win at all costs approach. Process provides constant reinforcement, feedback and rewards along the path to excellence.
