Switching Focus - A World Class Skill

Switching Focus: A World Class Skill

Simon Hartley

Be World Class

A little while ago I asked a National Head Coach, ‘what separates genuinely world class players from the rest’. His answer was very insightful. One of the keys, at the very highest level, appears to be the way world class players are able to control and switch their focus very quickly within the PDA cycle.

Creativity: The Greatest Light from the Darkest Place

Last week I watched a documentary on the rock band, U2. From The Sky Down, tells the story of how U2 forged their pivotal album Achtung Baby from the fires of their own personal hell. It offers a rare insight into the creative process in rock music. For me though, it reveals something greater. It shows how to find solutions where there don’t seem to be any and how we can generate our greatest moments of genius from our darkest hours.
