S:0632 Quote: Expect Performance

(Quotes are capsules of information, reinforcement or enlightenment.)

 

“Expect performance. Don’t expect success.”

Tiger Woods

 

Coaching Point: What!? Don’t expect success? That sounds wrong. We’re taught to want to succeed. But Tiger’s point is to put your attention on your performance — the plan, every action, receiving and evaluating feedback, course-correction — and let go of being attached to having a successful outcome. Focusing on performing your next action will lead to the success you want. Where have you experienced this?
