I was reading The Atlantic last evening and read this article by Chris Koentges on a goal keeping coach from Finland named Urpo Ylonen and found it fascinating. I have never played soccer and for that matter been interested in soccer but because of my tennis coaching past I delved into the article. Here is the link:

The Puck Stops Here

One of the most interesting parts of the article was how he used cross-training in badminton and eventually wrestling to work on various footwork and other skills in training these young men to be goalies. It made me wonder how effective my cross-training is in developing my mental models in my life. Are there true coaches in mental models that we can learn from in helping us develop our decision-making skills? I know Charles Munger has written extensively about this but are there others that I am not aware?
