We all bring mindsets into our learning and practice. Today we’re going to talk about what mindsets and traits or most effective for improving your practice and learning.
[excerpt from their book Better Faster]
Our goal with this book has been to give you a concrete plan for what to go out and actually do in your quest to get better.
But it would be coaching malpractice if we didn’t have a conversation about the common mental traits and mindsets that make the process of improvement more productive and more rewarding.
Watch a practice session with a super-learner and you’ll see a lot of things that are different than the “standard” lesson. One that stands out is the active learner’s relationship with “failure.” A receptive, curious player will hit a really bad shot and be intrigued by it. Why did that happen? What did I do differently, and how do I fix it? Other players tend to let emotion rule the moment. They hit some bad shots and get angry. Maybe they slam a club, or put the offending club away and hit something else. None of that addresses the real issue finding a solution to the ball-flight problem at hand.
