"SPOT On" Training

Your training and your practice sessions should never degenerate into a meaningless repetition of what you can already do. Instead your training should be better than that.

Your training should be SPOT ON training.

SPOT ON means:

  • Specified
  • Progressive
  • Ordered
  • Timetabled and
  • On-going


Don't dabble. Instead, decide.

Decide and specify exactly what you are going to do today.

Decide what you are going to focus on and then focus on it.

Focus a large amount of your concentrated mind-power onto a relatively small area of information. Don't spread your energy too thinly, over too broad an area.

Select your material and then master it.

Remember to do the most important things first; whether or not they are pleasurable; whether or not they are difficult.

Do not make the mistake of avoiding the difficult or un-pleasurable things in favour of the easy and more pleasurable.

You don't make progress by merely repeating what you can already easily do.


SPOT On Training

As already stated: Don't simply repeat what you can already easily do.

Your practice should be purposeful.

And the purpose of practice is to improve on your past best performance.

You should be better this week, than you were last week. And next week you should be better still. Better, in terms of quality, quantity and rate.

Improve the quality, or the quantity, or the pace of your work. Or all three if you can.

Strive to improve every workout.


Don't go by feel.

Go by a plan.

Work it out.

Make your goals.

Begin a workbook to record your efforts and your progress.

In some way you need to quantify your progress by counting.

  • Count the number of correct attempts.
  • Count the number of errors.
  • Count the rate at which you are working.

Make written goals. Keep written notes.

Make your progress graph-able. Not laughable.

Then make a graph and see your progress climb up and off the charts.


Once you have worked out your ordered plan, then timetable the training into your diary and stick to it. Come hell or high water.

Don't skip your practice. Don't skip your workout. Don't skip your homework.

  1. Winners never quit.
  2. And quitters never win.

Keep to the schedule.


Recognise that progress is always possible for you and should be made.

You will never reach perfection, but it is fun trying.

Your life can, and maybe even should, be a progressive realisation of your full genetic potential.

In all realms of your life, try to realise your full potential as a human being.

Your practice and training should be always: Specified, Progressive, Ordered, Timetabled, and On-going.

Spot On!
