Are you getting better? What makes you better?
I believe the biggest mistake that athetes make is working on things that they are already good at. What they should be doing is working on their weaknesses. That is the only way that the weaknesses will ever go away. It’s often very difficult to try to fix things that we are not good at. It definitely takes more work.
When I was a gymnast as a child, I loved to work on balance beam. I was really good at beam. It was fun and I did not have to put the same amount of effort for beam as I did on the other events, especially bars. The uneven bars were the toughest for me. I struggled daily on skill developement on bars. Every chance I got, I would practice my beam skills. I got better and better on beam. On bars, I stayed the same. I never made the improvements on bars that I made on beam. I didn’t work my weakness enough. This truly is my greatest regret of gymnastics.
Do you avoid your weaknesses to work on your strengths? Are you really getting better?
