0157 – Too Much Too Fast

Training is like building a home.  We can’t put on the roof until the walls are up.  Putting switch plate covers on before the switch is wired in is a bit silly.  I can’t imagine putting in new carpeting before the drywall has been sanded and painted.  You get the point.  Doing too much at once is a waste of time, energy and resources.

It isn’t any different with our training.  When it comes to training effectively we must effectively establish our foundation before we try and move on.  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 is beneficial.  Too Much Too Fast!

Avoid too much too fast by:

  • Focus on one skill at a time work toward mastery of that skill
  • Repetitions 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.  Too much to fast is a waste for everyone involved.
