Coach centers on strategy not scenery



“When your drive is moving your purpose, focus must hold the wheels else your might miss the way. And do you know what that means? Avoid Crash!!!. Stay focused!” ― Israelmore Ayivor

Sometimes tense situations in life can become even more trying for a soccer coach who is explaining strategy of the game to his players and have a number of his team paying more attention to the shifting background scenery.

This particular soccer game took place on a very windy day. Parents of the players had arranged their light weight seats near the players’ area and had momentarily left the scene to socialize with other parents.

Suddenly an intense gust of wind blew with such force that the neatly assembled chairs were slammed to the ground.

At that point in time a number of players focused more intently on the problem at hand than on the specific strategies being discussed by their coach.

After taking a brief break to upright the seats the coach returned to instructing his players.

His players did win this soccer match despite unexpected gusts of wind carrying the soccer ball this way and that around the playing field. —  gc
