At the moment I have tunnel vision towards my coaching career. All I can think about is how to win football games. I still can’t dedicate 100% of my time to football but I’ll work towards that. As much as I love dancing, what I want for my life is to be a coach, and dancing will serve the purpose of paying the bills and supporting the beginning of my coaching career. The same is truth about massage. I’ll keep studying it and learning whatever is necessary to work in case I need it, but that’s it.
I’ve always had a multitude of interests, which in my opinion is a quality. But in the modern world focus is necessary to be successful and I really want to coach at the highest level. Will I be happy in the process? Time will tell, but my guess is yes.
Even within the world of football, there ar many ways to get distracted from the single purpose of a coach: to improve his team. It’s a mind game. It’s a communication game. All the rest is vain.
Next week I’ll be coaching at a Barcelona FC camp and I hope to learn from that. The season is just ahead and I feel like I have an empty canvas in front of me. A bunch of talented, crazy about football kids and 27 season games. It’s my pen and paper. Let’s make it happen!
