Everybody who participates in a sport or game knows the difference between a coach and a player. When two different people have distinct roles and responsibilities of a coach and a player, it’s pretty clear what the differences are. But look in the mirror my dart playing friend. For most of you, both the coach and the player exist in that one person that you see in the mirror. While you’re looking into the mirror, ask yourself, “How well is this coach doing his/her job? How well is this player performing?”.
Be honest with yourself. If you are not satisfied with one or both roles, you may want to ask yourself, “What can the person in the mirror do to get the maximum performance from both the coach and the player?”.
If you want to continuously improve and reach higher levels of personal achievement in this game of darts, then you might want to figure out for yourself, what it takes to be both your own personal coach and a motivated player.
I’ve always lived by the rule that you get out of something, what you put in to it. Hard work and dedication produce results. If you don’t have a personal coach, then everything is left up to you. Become proactive. Take control.
I’d like to hear from you, what you are doing in your roles as a coach and as a player. Please leave a reply and share your experiences. I believe that every one of us can learn something from each other.
