Episode 266: Red zone, yellow zone, green zone
If you notice that you find yourself thinking or saying, ‘look, I messed up there’
or ‘my timing could have been better there’ and you have an underlying feeling of disappointment, this episode is for you.
In this week’s episode, we discuss a simple tool that can help reduce the fear of mistakes and the trap of perfectionism. As riders develop the ability to feel more while riding, the heightened awareness will reveal both the things that ARE working, as well as the things that are not.
One tool for adjusting your perspective is to categorize by zones—red, yellow, and green. Once you understand what these zones represent, you’ll understand why ‘perfect’ timing isn’t always necessary.
This same concept is also a useful way to think when planning, goal-setting, and reviewing your progress.
