Question of the Day

I keep overly saying “sorry” in the boat, even when I don’t need to. Any tips on how to stop?

Just … stop. It’s that simple.

When I was a novice I’d occasionally apologize for things and the rowers would be like … wait, what happened? … because they had no idea what I was even apologizing for. After that I stopped saying “sorry” unless the situation absolutely warranted it. If you say it too often it dilutes it’s value so when you do something that actually requires you to be sorry your rowers will most likely respond with “well, she apologizes for everything, she’s not really that sorry” and still be pissed at you for whatever it was, despite the fact that you offered up an apology.
