Why Sprinters are Quick…and I am slow.
For quite awhile I have had issues with my calf muscles.
They were consistently tightening and tearing
and really impacting on my ability to run and keep fit.
I came up with a ‘plan’…
That was to run like I was on one of those
airport escalators, (you know the ones).
I barely lifted my knees and flicked my feet
forward trying not to impact the ground much,
thinking this would help my calves.
The opposite was true,
The situation got worse and worse,
so I gave up. (Usain Bolt was no doubt relieved. J)
Recently I saw a Youtube clip of someone like
an A.I.S (Australian Institute of Sport) person showing a sprinter
running and explaining why they are quicker than most of us.
Turns out they lift their knees higher than the average
runner and apply more force
into the ground than most of us.
That reminded me of a former Rugby League Champion
By the name of Noel Cleale.
He was amazing to see…
Sprinting down the field and watching
massive divots of grass and dirt flying out of the ground
as he surged towards the try line.
These were the two things I saw to realise…
I WAS COMPLETELY and UTTERLY DOING IT ALL WRONG!
My Theory was flawed and so were my results.
I’ve just tried out the ‘new’ theory and guess what?
(No I didn’t run 100 metres in 9.42 secs), but..
I had a very enjoyable run and pulled up injury free.
So….? I hear you ask.
The moral of this story is…
Even with hard work and your best intentions,
if your theory is flawed, the results you are looking for
will sadly, continue to elude you.
A simple, fundamental change in your approach
can have MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT in RESULTS!
Put your business theories and
fundamentals under the microscope and…
Sometimes just a few small tweaks can equate to huge results.
To your business success,
All businesses have their own nuances.
