Notes to self.

Work: on problem solving and dealing with idiots
  • Look at the big picture; start from the start.
  • Start from the observed issue/symptoms; other people's causal analysis is usually incomplete.
  • You will be asked the wrong question; ignore it and look to the broader question. Gather information, ask questions, find out exactly what happened before beginning.
  • Do not discount possible causes prematurely; ensure all are sufficiently investigated such that they can be definitively ruled out.
  • Do not be influenced by others ignoring this process and jumping to premature conclusions; take responsibility.

 

Soccer: on playing like in the old days
  • Don't merely watch the play when you are not involved; run to support and back up.
  • Concentrate on not losing your player when it gets chaotic.
  • Practice thinking two steps ahead: if I get the ball here, where is someone else free to pass it to?
  • Practice looking up for the pass; trust your peripheral vision for your foot to connect with the ball.
  • If you have options already lined up, you won't panic.

I generally think two steps behind when playing football. It might explain my woeful scoring rate lately :/

Thanks, Morgan :) Yeah, I am somewhat slower now; this year was my comeback from knee reconstruction and three years off. Coming back was/is hard but I still love playing :)
