Podcast: The Disappearing White Line
Let me tell you another true story.
In addition to being a life coach, I am an athletic coach. I hold a US National Level One coaching license from USA Track and Field.
When my daughter was in middle school, I was the coach for both the girls and boys cross country team.
Cross country is a running sport in which individuals run races on open-air courses in parks, fields and forested areas.
Virtually all cross country courses include a white line throughout the whole course for the runners to follow.
On a Sunday, I went out with the high school cross country coach and we laid out a 1.5 mile course in the city park as we were hosting a very first middle school invitational.
We marked a 1.5 mile course with white paint directly on the grass in the park.
The next Monday, the grass cutting crew cut the grass and totally erased our 1.5 mile course. I was not told about grass being cut until about an hour before our very first invitational was going to start.
I had to think fast and I used the Improvise, Adapt and Overcome framework and worked the problem to come up with a solution in a few minutes before all the buses started arriving with the middle school cross country teams.
How did I use the Improvise, Adapt and Overcome framework to come up with a solution to the disappearing white line?
Using the Improvise, Adapt, and Overcome framework, will help you create a positive impact in your own life any time you are facing an adverse event.
