It’s more like darts than chess

Reading Time: 2 minutes

—————- The next find out more meeting for our September programme is on Tuesday 27th August which is in The countdown is done. Check to find out more, see what the meeting involves and, potentially, take that next step to transforming your life and body


Chess Grand Masters can, supposedly, think 25 to 30 moves ahead.

Planning out all sort of potential moves, combinations, responses, etc.

A world champion darts player will probably think a couple of moves ahead at most.

To be semi okayish at Chess you probably have to think at least a few moves ahead.

To play an ok game of darts you can just get up and keep throwing until you get somewhere nearish zero and then start to think about what combinations can leave you on that double to win.

Where we often go wrong with out health and fitness approaches is trying to treat them more like a game of chess than of darts.

Trying to work out the perfect plan to get us all the way to our goal as fast as possible.

All the steps from 1 to 20 all planned out.

And we get paralysis by analysis.

And don’t end up doing much.

Detailed plans are absolutely essential when you’re a high level athlete.

Mo Farrah and pals will need to know every bit of how to take steps 93 to 100.

But for the rest of us, just moving in the right direction is plenty.

Take steps one and two.

Or eleven and twelve.

Where ever you are.

Take everything a day or so at a time.

Make the better decisions today more often than not (like clicking this link to take the next step with us, if you haven’t already –> The next meeting is only a week away now).

We don’t need to sit on that stool, planning every dart.

Just step up to the board and throw.

Much love,

Jon ‘The Power’ Hall and Matt ‘Beast of Baku’ Nicholson

P.S. 5 points for those middle names 🙂
