When we reflect on our own path we uncover and learn our own basics and secret sauce to our performance. The basics that matter most!
In novice performers there is more looking over the fence than looking at their own back yard. Expert performers know the details in their own backyard first. When they observe the practice of others the context and reference point is clear.
If we don’t know what we do and why we do it everything else looks like a possible option and new solution. The expert knows the magic in self-reflection is on their own side of the fence!
