And, in keeping with that desire to keep things fresh, Paddy told the club website that he's keen to make one day a week as challenging as possible - not for the sake of it, but with a purpose in mind.
"We're going to make one of the days of the week the toughest day. It will be a mentally challenging day for the players.
"The demands of the Premiership call for mentally tough players. Because it's such a tough competition, the players simply must be mentally switched on week in week out.
"When they are fatigued, when they are under pressure, when the crowd's back is up home or away, the players have to be mentally tough and I think in this league, the top four teams have demonstrated that.
"The majority of the first year they have come out on top in those pressure situations, regardless of the opposition, and that's how we need to improve our game next season, decision-making and discipline.
"You have to be tested in a mentally challenging environment, and sometimes your training venue isn't going to give you that.
"With professional athletes you have to bring variety into it, but they've also got to see an objective. If you just thrash players that's not necessarily mentally challenging.
"You can take them out of the environment and put them somewhere else, doing more contact work but also challenging them mentally.
"We'll put all our ideas in a bag, and we'll see if we can manage that day to become a tough day, and ensure the players respect why we're doing that.
"Sometimes the decisions you make are the wrong decisions, but it's vital you don't back that up with another wrong decision and another wrong decision - it's important not to compound mistakes or those decisions in a negative way.
"Everyone makes poor decisions during a game, but it's how you react to those that counts.
"And if you can put players in situations that give you those sorts of scenarios hopefully you can manipulate positives out of every situation.
"These sorts of challenges help keep things fresh during pre-season too, and I think it's something the players appreciate."
