This article made my day! I particularly agree with the ‘practice’ angle – why do we think that we can learn a new skill as if by magic? Why do we imagine we can read a book and magically learn a new skill? I don’t think we learnt to ride the bike that way!?
We read all these self help books (please stop!) and want to be more mindful/grateful/present/compassionate/decisive/calm but imagine that it can happen without really trying. Its not true – it takes practice.
Coaching can help – but nothing beats day in, day out practice! #coaching #practice
