Being a Beginner
“Before I can tell my life what I want to do with it,
I must listen to my life telling me who I am.”
Parker J. Palmer
You may know, or recall, the 10,000 hour rule. Regardless of the precision of the “rule” it takes a long time to become masterful. The many hours must be deliberate, focused, purposeful attention to fundamentals. I believe the attention to training affords the athlete the opportunity to make thousands of mistakes. It is the failing, falling down, missed chances, errors and setbacks that contribute most importantly to growth and development: the essence of being a beginner. Making mistakes enables the athlete to discover what “works” and what “doesn’t work”. Failing is uncomfortable, yet being uncomfortable is a vital training requirement for success. Beginners do not fear failure because they do not acknowledge it; activity is an opportunity to experience the wholeness of being a failing forward human being. What practices can an athlete employ to achieve deep commitment to being a beginner?
