Reading Brett Steenbarger's blog last night I followed a link to a book "Talent Is Overrated". Reading the amazon book reviews convinced me of the benefits of coaching. It is for that purpose that I am undertaking this journal. By making daily updates of my thoughts, practice routines, progress, and fumbles, I hope to build an archive that qualified people could use to provide coaching feedback. In the past I have shunned interaction with coaches and avoided openly writing about what I am doing because I would be inviting competition. Now I realize this is only a problem if I stop innovating, and the potential benefit far outweighs the downside. For this reason I am willing to put almost anything on the table for discussion except where I might be putting my business partner at risk.
