Intelligence in climbing - TFB Strategies...

Operating without no 2..
Someone once told me that ' intelligence' is overrated...

If one was so intelligent then one might think that a humans' ability or gift to be intellectual was something greater than others with perceived 'less' intelligence?

But surely that's unintelligent? For to think that your ' intelligence' is greater than another seems kinda dumb. Then we throw 'genius' into things we don't personally understand?

Seems it is a bit like language. Some argue that language is just metaphorical and we generally don't say exactly what we mean.

Anyway, what I'm talking about is working with autism. The great thing about working with autism is there is no space for untruths, because it doesnt make sense.

When 1, 3,4,5,6 are all there for you to easily move a conversation forward or make a learning outcome succesful but 2 is somewhere else, then you just build new routes, new learning strategies, new ways to re-engage at an intelligent, honest, unpatronising level that validates the objective and then it's all just Tickety Fucking Boo... (TBF).

Anyway... #autism #ticketyfuckingboo

Referrals from clients:

"...This training season I decided to get all the help I can to speed up my improvement. I needed guidance to work towards my goals in long term. I also needed more vision and opinions about my exercises and weak links. I am glad I can share my training with Mark..." (Ville Mustonen, Finland)

" I met Mark in Glen Nevis on his return to climbing to check out some lines he had in mind for me, I wasn't really training at this point but after a day or two talking and training with him I had a much more structured idea of what to do to improve and I did" (Kev Shields)
