Patience and Resiliency. Both my children had volleyball tournaments last weekend. 7-8hours spent each day competing as hard as they could. Unfortunately, it was not a successful weekend…which led to frustration from both kids….and parents! Trying to exercise patience when trying to teach the importance of being resilient. There is timing to teaching…and it’s important to get it right. Instead of getting into the critique after a bad day…. felt it was important to take a step back and exercise some patience. Wait 24hours. Let the emotions fade, then discuss what was learned, what can be improved, and how to build a game plan to address short falls in individual or team performance. This is a lesson I need to apply more often. Both at home and professionally. Sometimes it’s the simple things that you forget about. Be patient, be supportive, and most importantly be thoughtful when offering guidance. Resilience is a critical attribute for us all.
