The Full 90 with Mike Avery

Updated: May 19, 2020

90 Word Reflections on Coaching.

Not as easy as it sounds (but neither is coaching).

REGULAR TIME (90):

Reflection 1: 90 words on when it ends.


This long, slow, silence of the “new normal” challenges.


Awake.


Alone, save for my thoughts.


No clarity forward. I look back.


Can’t remember the wins. Only the losses.


The pain of regret doesn’t fade. It hides.


Patiently waiting to resurface. Stronger. Matured.


Retrospective reflection is valuable. I believe that. I crave it.


To fail with curiosity instead of shame is toughness.


But…how?


Did I leave it better than I found it?


It’s the only question that matters.


Embrace the answer first. Fully.


Okay, now on to the rest.


Vamos.


EXTRA TIME:

“It started off as a song of defiance, about this woman: She’s metaphorically seeing the diary of her life pass by, and she’s thinking, ‘You know what? I have no regrets.’ She’s raising a glass to it.”

- Noel Gallagher to NPR on writing “Don’t Look Back In Anger” for Oasis in 1995
