Friday Unwind – Recovering from mistakes – Remember the 3P’s

9 Jun

Another great video from Brian Johnson. Adapted from the book by Jim Afermow called the Champion’s comeback, to regain our equanimity, in the face of making a mistake we need to do three things:

  • Be present – there is no point dwelling in the past; what is the very next thing we need to do
  • Be positive – negativity is a drain on focus; believe in what is working
  • Focus on process – don’t overthink the mistake; focus on what you know how to do

This was a great reminder for me. (For those that weren’t sure on the definition of equanimity see below; H/T Google)

e·qua·nim·i·ty    (ekwəˈnimədē/)
noun
  1. mental calmness, composure, and evenness of temper, especially in a difficult situation.

all the best, kevin
