Train for ‘how to’ and develop for ‘have to’

What’s the difference between a lifetime of personal vibrancy and a lifetime without vibrancy?

Development.

Parents train (instruct) their kids how to do things, like brushing and flossing their teeth.

But few parents develop their kids to understand why you have to brush and floss for a lifetime.

When was the last time you flossed? You. Yes you. When?

Ok, when was the last time you flossed daily for an entire year?

Now can you hear me?

Training (aka teaching) is not the same as development (coaching).

  • Training is tangible.
  • Development is intangible.

Training only tells me what to do each day.

Development is what convinces me to actually find the commitment to do it every single day.
