If you ever watch the show 24′ on FOX network you know the character Jack Bauer. This man is trying to save the world and rid us of all that is evil and untrue. The one thing you never see Jack Bauer do in the 24hr time fame is poop, pee, eat or hydrate. My point is as stated in the article, humans are not robots nor TV daytime reality characters. The 24hr pyramid – 8 hours of sleep, 6 hours of school, 4 hours of study, 3 hours of sport, one hour social. A bit rigid with all that is going on in middle to late adolescence’s with family, holidays and part time jobs with “significant other”. Their needs and desires are for independence and personal responsibilities with parents, teachers, coaches and bosses. It’s a growth and development stage, each athlete is unique and each athlete will mature at different rates. There is no such thing as a fixed recipe for victory and as a coach I will not allow success or failure to drive me and my athletes’ to an ingrained or unaltered fixed mindset. If you believe in them and teach them hard work, smart work and discipline they will want to do the “right thing” for you, their teammates and most important themselves.
