    Hi Barrie, The game cannot be won if the ball never lands in our court! I agree that our reality isn’t just a matter of what happens, but has a lot to do with what we do with it. And that is a function of our mindset and perspective.

    Great post Barrie and have to agree if you don’t make mistakes you never learn. Thanks for sharing.

    We all have cycles of creating and adjusting. By taking action, learning from less than perfect results and making adjustments to actions, we can increase our skill level and our ability to craft the results you want.

    Deliberate practice involves sustained, specific attempts to do something that you we cannot do well yet. I think there is a minimum of 10,000 hours if you want to become expert in something. Less if you just want be good at if for daily life. Only by working at what we cannot do yet can we increase our skill and expertise and learn to do it.

    As you mentioned, some people find that coaching makes it easier for them to deliberately practice long enough to get good at their desired skills and abilities.

    Interesting post Barrie. I like “make a decision, then do it”. Nothing happens if you don’t take action, no matter what your philosophy!
