When we engage in any activity we gain experience. Experience allows us to fine-tune our processes, to learn from previous reps.
Anyone will get better at an activity, to a degree, with experience, even a “negative” experience. The baby learning to walk doesn’t “get it” simply because she is growing stronger and bigger, nor do her failures keep her from working at walking.
However, enjoying an activity usually means we will do more of it, be more interested in doing it better, and thus gain more experience. It’s a cycle. One that works.
Logic says we should enjoy–at least to an extent–the activities at which we wish to get better. So making experiences fun or enjoyable would make sense.
How can you make that a part of your coaching?
