One of three things can happen:
1. They might be effectively blocked from reaching the goal by opposing forces.
2. They could be fouled and blocked at the same time, resulting in a try to salvage something from the effort.
3. They can make the shot, in the face of defense and interference……plus earn a shot at scoring even more. And One!
Business is a lot like basketball. There can be chaos and interference around your team but, by maintaining the required focus and controlled action, it is still possible to reach your goal.
“March Madness” seems a fitting name for the NCAA tournament. The faint-hearted may back off, while the unbridled may charge ahead and create damage without results. The most talented —and disciplined — players know the difference. It takes much more than raw talent to reach a peak level of performance.
Sports truly are a reflection of the elements that determine success in life. And business is part of life. When you know you’ve got a great team behind you, it’s possible to push harder and achieve more. Momentum also tends to swing your way when that happens. And One!
