Got this from a friend. Unable to resist temptation to share & comment!
- Coaching is perceived to be strongly linked (only) to sports, though
it has borrowed a bit from there. As such the relevance of observations
on Surfing can be extrapolated to Coaching,
Executive/Leadership/Transformational or just Life Coaching. Perhaps, the fact Bruce has 'only surfed a small number of times', makes it possible for him to look deeper...
- We tend to play safe. We work within our comfort zone, without testing waters beyond. 2 out of last 3 coaching sessions, I gently pushed client to take up the challenge to get out of comfort zone & do something very different. To challenge ourselves...
- If failures are pillars to success... they are waves of success & failures.
- Often we don't fix goals that keep us passionate about it.
If goals are at those levels, and we are passionate about it, the results will not only surprise a whole lot of others, but ourselves too.
