You are not a Swiss watch and your coach is not a watchmaker.
In this episode, Matt redefines specificity to unshackle you from the pretense of precision. In fact, a focus on precision in every session is a slippery slope that leads to obsession, paralysis of analysis, erosion of confidence, and an overreliance on metrics.
You can, however, gain specificity without being precise and if it is done right, it means you don’t have to obsess over every detail to get wonderful and lasting results in sport and life.
Stop searching for daily performance treasures. Don’t become so analytical in every session, look for trends of great behavior, and realize that it’s normal to have a bunch of ordinary and maybe even a few catastrophic days, but hopefully a sprinkle of some pretty darn good ones.
Give yourself permission to realize that precision doesn’t make performance. It’s a healthy dose of consistency, specific training progressed over time…and a whole lot of patience.
