The Ryder Cup – Spot the Difference?

Under-Achievement – Are you a Victim or Genius?

I’d like to share a beautiful metaphor created whilst working recently with a group of University athletes. As a group we considered the things that appear to ‘get us’, seem to ‘put us in a bad mood’, ‘send us crazy with frustration’ and distract us from our performance programme. One of the most common circumstances at University is, the state [...]
