Good to Great… some player make the jump, others don’t

After final in Wimbledon, I can recall one interview of the coach of Tomas Berdych, Tomas Krupa « In the Czech mentally, we need a little more time to be good »

I was just trying to stay mentally in that situation” Berych said after beating Roger Federer… “He always had so much ability” said ESPN Mary Joe Fernandez… and Tomas Krupa adding “Now it is more comfortable in his head


Easy to say afterwards…but I can see the amount of time in the process that both player and coach actually spent before

Framing the issues between both Tomas. Generating and then evaluating alternatives together, before making a decision. Decision communicated and to finally reach the implementation of that decision… which tasks will be required to put decisions into actions, establish deadlines, adding resources…


I imagine the tremendous work behind the scene, and the patience of the entourage…

And I can foresee the great dedication of the player to spend time and daily work to achieve this difficult but so important improvement…


Talent is nothing without work…


And first, all comes from desire to do things…


I saw in the past too many players willing to work… but they could not really show concretely interest in working…avoiding open dialogue or promoting healthy debate to truly clarifying their situation by facing their fears and their failures and then learning for them…

There are often so many difficulties to recognize your own obstacles…


Remember: By recognizing these tendencies, your individual biases, you already will take action to avoid them.

And accept it takes time and a daily dedication
