We’re talking Pareto Principle here. 80/20 rule.
20% of your stuff gives you 80% of the results.
20% of the plays in your playbook might get 80% of your yards. 80% of your points.
20% of the technique you’re teaching on how to block or tackle is producing 80% of the success.
Crazy stuff, right? Most of us are well aware of the 80/20 rule. But we don’t always apply it to coaching.
Your playbook gets bigger as the season goes on. As your career goes on.
The drill library expands. More drills. Better drills. Bigger drills.
Is all that stuff producing results? Sure. But some of it... about 20%... is producing most of your results.
So here it is, Episode 163 of The Football Coaching Podcast. The secret. The holy grail.
How to become a better football coach, right now... in one simple step.
