A coach can know all the tricks in the book inside and out, but they can only play with the cards they are dealt. This is one of the things I love about sports, that the players and coaches have to understand their own strengths and weaknesses, and how to best utilize the unique skills each player brings and how to best mitigate their weaknesses.
Of course you can train new players or teach new tricks, but that comes with a certain opportunity cost, so it’s interesting to see where time and money are invested, and even better when you see it pay off.
This is why you see teams having certain requirements for certain positions, all in the name of a certain goal. We can think about this in the same way for how we want to achieve our goals as well.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
