“How you do anything is how you do everything”
I love this statement and it is so true. I learned this from my boss when I was 26 years old and I was having a BAD attitude about having to clean the bathrooms at the gym I worked at.
I wanted to be training people in the gym, but I had no experience yet and they only had an opening for a front desk attendant. I took the job not knowing I would have to clean the bathroom!
So I did my job and I did it well. That same boss noticed me and gave me my own club to be the General Manager, 3 months later, because I did my job well, even though I hated it. It led me to the bigger dream of being a trainer and running the gym and gave me so much confidence.
I use this as a foundation for my own business and training as well.
This statement pertains to so many things in relation to life and sport.
If you are just going through the motions of your training and not really paying attention to the details, you will not improve as much as you truly could.
You may say you want to run, swim or bike faster, hit that DREAM goal time at a race but at the same time not really show up the way you know you should to get the results you desire.
The details do matter. And this is NOT hard.
If you are spending the time in the pool, on the bike and running, might as well take the time to focus on the skill of the movement, and do the form correcting drills, hit the intervals, do the strength and stretching.
The results from there will blow you away as you watch as all those dreams become reality!
Here’s to the details!
