Plans vs reality and your expectations

“that is just day-to-day delivery”

Maybe I’ve been lucky in the fact that I have been involved in sport all of my life in both team and individual sports and knowing that even the best laid plans go pear-shaped from time-to-time; for example in a cup final you may lose your key playmaker 20 mins into the game or have mis-underestimated the oppositions ability under the high ball or during an ironman triathlon your stomach cramps on the bike and you need to re-adjust your nutrition plan that you have spent weeks perfecting or you find yourself out of position on the swim or with a flat tyre on the bike. You always need to adapt and have plans in place for when things go wrong or at least precondition your mind to be able to think on its feet when met with a challenge.

How can you expect to motivate a team without being a constant source of positivity and enthusiasm?
