One of the reasons that I started Blueprint for Football was to learn and nothing boosts this as much as talking to other people. It is something that I’ve come to appreciate more than ever with every interview that I’ve had the good fortune to carry out. Over the Christmas period I went through six years of the site’s archives to look for the most insightful interviews that I’d done in this period and brought them all together so that they can be re-read with ease. Boost your own learning by going through them.
Most of the barriers that we face we impose on ourselves. Here’s a piece that details how they can be broken down.
I still recall when I started work after university and quickly realising how all that I had learned counted very little. In football it is the same: no matter how many qualifications you have, you learn best by doing.
Ok, so this is about gridiron (aka American football) but there’s so much that anyone from any walk of life can learn through it.
“The culture precedes positive results. It doesn't get tacked on as an afterthought on your way to the victory stand. Champions behave like champions before they're champions: they have a winning standard of performance before they are winners.” – Bill Walsh
