As coaches, we want to do 100 different things while going 100mph. We learn something new and we think we’re ready to teach it. We have long-term visions, but we want to bring them to life right now.
The reality is that if we try to do too much, too fast we won’t do anything but spin our tires.
What I am about to share with you is not a secret recipe.
It’s actually more of a warning.
In order to accomplish any of your goals, you must narrow your focus and concentrate your efforts on perfecting one, or maybe two things at a slow pace.
With that said, I want to share something that I am afraid of.
As we return to normal (or adjust to the new normal), I’m worried that a lot of coaches are going to be overzealous.
A lot of us are using this shutdown as an opportunity for learning. There has been an explosion of webinars, videos, and podcasts recently. Coaches have been flooded with opportunities to educate themselves. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing (as long as you know how to filter and choose the right people to learn from).
We are going to have weeks, possibly months of new ideas, information, and concepts waiting to be unleashed. We are going to be foaming at the mouth as that first practice date approaches. And if we’re not careful, it can backfire.
But the best advice I can offer right now is this: Remember the recipe.
Because if you try to do too much, or if you try to go too fast, you run the risk of drowning yourself and your players with too much information.
