What a great post - many thanks Rob. Very succinct and each lesson contains so much.

In particular the 'practise what you preach' set me thinking. At the ripe age of 60 I'm still pretty active. I found I was uncomfortable. though, going into big events in which people I was coaching were also taking part - there was an inevitable competitive tension. So the last few years I've shied away from races and events where there's a risk of getting into "so what was your time?" or "where did you come?" comparisons. (Its also getting harder to keep ahead!) Instead I'm much more drawn and feel more comfortable doing things that others haven't attempted, like the Isles of Scilly Ötillö SwimRun or for which times and places aren't that relevant like the Dart 10k swim.

And as I've written elsewhere about Growth Mindsets I also try to keep myself open to new challenges, learning new skills and new experiences - in part as a way of staying in touch with what it must feel like for those who come to me for help starting something new and scary.

Thanks for the feedback Mike! Interesting that age doesn't dampen our competitiveness! ;)
I think the best thing is to have an attitude of being a life long learner - that really is so key to finding new perspectives/experiences!
