Getting closer to the right answer for that particular athlete at that particular time

Seth Godin writes today: 

Science is a process. It's not pretending it has the right answer, it merely has the best process to get closer to that right answer.

Coaching is very much a process.

It's not pretending to have the right answer, but on on-going process/discussion/experiment to get closer to that right answer for that particular athlete at that particular time.
