Find your Own Pace

If you don’t know I am a runner. I have ran nearly every day for the last 10 years accepting a few month long breaks where I gave it up and decided I was going to be a cyclist. Sometimes when I run I get passed by “cheaters” running twice my speed and often I pass individuals that are running at a much slower pace.

What do we all have in common? We are all out running. We all wave at each other, we all make way for each other, and we all have a common respect for each other. No person has ever criticized my pace and I have never criticized another’s.

Instead we recognize that we are all difference and we are all the same. We have all found our own pace and we all encourage each other to have fun and have our own pace!

Find your own pace. Find a rhythm that works for you. Push yourself, don’t push yourself. But don’t listen to the armchair coaches who say you are not good enough, not fast enough, not using the right equipment or will never succeed. Instead ignore those that don’t do and do and do at your own pace and when you need help … know that there are many of us our here that do that are here to help.

What is your pace?

Ennis Lynch is a Professional Coach Based in South Florida. His primary area of coaching focuses on coaching Software Engineering Leadership. On occasion he does Agile Transformation work as well but prefers coaching at the Team and Individual level vs. the organizational level.


If you have ever wondered: is professional coaching right for me and you are a Software Engineering Manager, Director of Engineering, Director of Software Engineering, VP of Engineering, or CTO reach out for a free initial coaching session. See if coaching is right for you. Initial coaching sessions are the real deal, no hard-sells, no "here is what you would get if you paid". Individuals that receive a free coaching session will get a normal private professional coaching session of 90 minutes (30 minute onboarding + 60 minute coaching) and it will be up to you to follow-up if you want to continue with help on your journey.


Ennis is always gathering research through a team building exercise called the Ball Point Game. If you are interested in a team-level exercise and want to participate in a research project to further the field reach out. The exercise is free in South Florida (and really fun)
