Coach's Corner: Jeff Floyd 6/11
By Jeff Floyd former Truman High School Head Coach
So you want to make BIG changes…in your career…. on your squad…. in your health… in your strength level… with a new project?
Being committed, consistent, and persistent are the keys.
Seth Godin, one of my favorite authors and marketing Guru, describes it this way in his recent post, A hierarchy of failure (from brave to shameful)
It's the flameouts and the scams that get all the publicity, but it's the long-term commitment that pays off. I have nothing but applause for those brave enough to fail, and fail again. It's not so much a failure as it is one more thing that won't work.
And the critics and the non-starters? They will get little respect from me.
Some say, "go big or go home," but I prefer, "keep going." Drip by drip.”
You want to improve your strength level (or the strength level of your players)?
Drip… drip… drip… an increase in your 1RM (1 Rep Max) of only 10 pounds each month translates to an increase of 120 pounds over the course of a year... that is if you are committed, consistent and persistent.
You want to lose (or gain) weight?
Drip… drip… drip… a loss (or gain) of a mere 1 pound a week translates to 4 pounds a month, 52 pounds a year… that is if you are committed, consistent and persistent.
You want to be a head coach?
Drip… drip… drip… Most head coaches were position coaches or coordinators first. Do a great job at the job you have. Be the best position coach or coordinator in the state and your time will come… that is if you are committed, consistent and persistent.
You want to get in better shape... run a 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon?
Drip… drip… drip… start walking, progress to walk/run, then run 3.2 miles… that is if you are committed, consistent and persistent.
You have a big project coming up?
Drip… drip… drip… How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time… that is if you are committed, consistent and persistent.
You can accomplish BIG… GREAT things without having to “hit it out of the park” every swing, or “Going Big” … that is if you are committed, consistent and persistent!
