The Economist published an article titled, “Life in the Fast Lane” which talked about how F1 (Motorsports) Coaching was helping in the business world. I loved the idea of how High Performance type coaching is bleeding off into the mainstream, but felt the article fell short of what really could have been said.
Here is a link to that article and my letter to the editor –
I enjoyed seeing an article that hit close to home with “Life in the Fast Lane” in the May 28th issue. With my business, (high performance motorcycle racing coaching) it has been proven time and time again by my clients, embracing the habits and techniques that they learn on the bike, to their business and personal life, a pathway for success off the bike happens where they never though possible.
F1 is the pinnacle of auto racing, as is MotoGP for motorcycles. You would think that these drivers/riders are huge risk takers, when in fact, they are the mitigating risk, far more than the average person driving their car to the local grocery.
My program takes that step further, with part of my leadership group being retired Special Forces operatives, that brings a level of mindset to my clients never thought obtainable for Motorsports. “I don’t have the luxury of being incompetent”
The article was great start, but only scratched the surface of how the world of high performance elite coaching from one of the riskiest sports in the world, helps people succeed. The article missed the real habits, the real techniques – that anyone person with desire – can apply to make an enormous impact in ones daily personal or business life.
