Coaching requires a lot of quick thinking and creativity. When faced with a problem sometimes simply stepping back and getting a different perspective will allow you to find a better solution. There is a great a great fable about how two different countries solved the issue of writing notes while in space.

The tale goes like this….When NASA first started sending astronauts into space they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and over $12 billion developing a pen that would write in zero gravity, upside down, on almost any surface including glass, and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 500 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Russians simply used a pencil.

There are always multiple ways to solve a problem.
