Life happens while we are planning. Like flying high stakes aerobatics and hitting an air pocket. You have all the skills to execute the maneuver to perfection. You cannot control the weather.
The consequences of the unexpected are determined by two factors.
Our planning. Soviet weightlifters in the 1970’s were the best in the world. Part of their training regimen was to train for failure. Not seating the clean properly, not getting the arm lock on the snatch.
It seems silly to train for ill-execution. You are happy you did when you buckle under competition pressure and PB weights.
Our response. How quickly we react to the situation will limit the impact. This requires us to be alert, be present, be proactive. This requires energy.
We would rather maintain the status quo by doing as little as possible.
Maintaining the status quo is always more work than you think.
