“The score takes care of itself”

American football coach and three time Super Bowl winner Bill Walsh has a famous saying.

It was even the title of one of his books.

“The score takes care of itself” he would often say (or so I’m told, I didn’t play for the San Francisco 49ers in the 80s).

If you become the right kind of person (identity) who does the right kind of things (process) then the outcome (the score in this case) will come automatically.

People often concentrate primarily on the outcome.

The score.

Losing 20lbs.

Being able to run a marathon.

And so on.

And those things are great to work towards.

To reverse engineer to decide on the processes needed to achieve them.

But if we concentrate purely on the outcome, we’ll only be so successful.

When we ‘become’ the right kind of person, the outcome just kinda happens automatically.

And the longer term, sustained results, that may have eluded us, are achieved.

When we go from “training up for a marathon”………..

To “being a runner”.

From “trying to lose weight”…………

To “being a slim, fit, healthy person who eats well most of the time and exercises regularly” (check www.theacademygtc.co.uk/briefing-meeting if you like the sound of that).

From “trying to give up smoking”………

To “being a none smoker”.

And so on…………

Then the results just come.

Identity and process are on a two way loop.

The more we do the processes the more our identity changes.

The more our identity changes, the easier we find the processes.

When we challenge our thoughts about how we see ourselves………..

When we work on that self image……..

The score takes care of itself.

Much love,
