When we train, regardless of what the training is, we think about the outcome. Execution with consideration of the consequences. Will I succeed or will I fail.
Outcome training boils down to "How many, how much, how fast" where performance base training is how well can I perform a task.
The thing about performance based training is we all perform differently and performance is basically measured by "doing what we can with what we have". When you give an individual permission to train within his capability level he will easily go from a plateau up to the next level. Where it's easy to be stuck in a rut when you consider the outcome it sabotages your ability to perform.
It’s easy to fall into the outcome based training rut because you do not have to be a teacher to teach outcome. You can just be a monkey on a podium opening up some book and reading some arbitrary crap, a set of standards for instance - "There's your outcome, this is what you have to do ". Once again execution with consideration of the consequences, will I succeed or will I fail vs what I am doing and what I can do.
There are no limits. Limits begin where vision ends.
Burn out rather than fade out
A few fun things about me:
In college I took 3 years of American Sign Language and was on path to becoming an interpreter. -
I met my wife in middle school band. We both played the trumpet and sat next to each other for the duration of that and high school marching band (yes, I’m a band geek 🤓). It’s been an exciting 12 years. ♥️
I used to rap and produce my own beats. Feels like a lifetime ago! -
Now, it’s your turn...
