Diary of a creator of his own destiny
Never ask a coach what you should do, ask him what he would do if he were in your place
Fosbury Flop emerged to empower coaches to create their own methodologies. No recipes are provided because what works in one context may be harmful in another. I don’t believe on simple, prescriptive formulas for success. Fosbury Flop aims to promote critical thinking and autonomy. This way, each one can create the best methodologies in any context they find themselves in.
As I believe that, in addition to being honorable, one has to be honest, I have decided to preach by example. Diary of a creator of his own destiny is my Skin in the game: being venerable to the consequences of my actions and what I say. I put on paper how do I face the day-to-day situations that my context provides me. I explain how the critical spirit I try to foster affects my training methods in a workplace that is in a different paradigm than mine. I want you to know what I do in my context in case it helps you to improve your practices in yours. I won’t tell you what to do. I speak for myself and from my experience. You will not leave here with any recipe or methodology nor do I intend it to be a guide.
Diary of a creator of his own destiny is a piece focused on what you can feel but not quantify. One cannot use statistics without logic —says Nassim N. Taleb— but, it is not a mistake to use logic without statistics. In the same vein, Ernest Rutherford said that if your experiment needs statistics, you should have done a better experiment. So that. I have written, straight from the gut and heart, what I have felt. It is not a scientific piece, rather a personal essay.
