Not that but this

I was doing a clean and press this morning watched by the eagle eye of my personal trainer. He observed that today I seemed to be putting more of my weight into my left leg - possibly compensating for my right knee. He told me what I needed to do and I thought I was doing what he was asking but I wasn't. It was only when he showed me a video of what I was doing that I could see for myself what we were (I was :-)) trying to avoid which then made it easier to change what I was doing.

Isn't that the same in so many things we do. As a trainer I spend a lot of time showing clients how to do things and know I need to show them more often what we don't want - not that but this.

How might your communication be improved if you added more "not this"?
