Training is like building a home. Â We can’t put on the roof until the walls are up. Â Putting switch plate covers on before the switch is wired in is a bit silly. Â I can’t imagine putting in new carpeting before the drywall has been sanded and painted. Â You get the point. Â Doing too much at once is a waste of time, energy and resources.
It isn’t any different with our training. Â When it comes to training effectively we must effectively establish our foundation before we try and move on. Â If we fail to do that, we are wasting our resources.
Many students and instructors, myself included at times, can be guilty of trying to move forward at a pace more rapid that isÂ beneficial. Â Too Much Too Fast!
Avoid too much too fast by:
- Focus on one skill at a time work toward mastery of that skill
- RepetitionsÂ provide for the development of neural pathways
- Stop trying to add “Tools to Your Toolbox”
- Strive for executable skills
- Apply it in RBT
When you find yourself or your instructor trying to stuff 10 gallons of crap into a 5 gallon bucket, step back, take a deep breath and head back to the basics. Â Too much to fast is a waste for everyone involved.
