Featured Blog Post: When Should We Change a Shot?
It's already a difficult enough process to adjust a player's shot. Is it really worth it? In some cases, it's definitely warranted. But in others, we may just be nitpicking and end up wasting valuable effort and time! Check out our thoughts on it here.
What we learned this week:
"How do I get twice the production for half the effort?" We've got to ask this question more both on the business and skill development side of things. Exerting the least effort to get the maximum level of improvement breeds the highest level of efficiency. This could be in a player development context, where we're asking ourselves what we can work on with a player to get the best long-term results, with the least amount of time and effort. Or on the business side, with finding a small tweak in the business that can lead to a massive increase in profit.
There's one theme that has been coming up in many of the podcasts I've been listening to this week, and even in my own day-to-day experience: perseverance is undoubtedly more important than "hard work," and perseverance is only found by connecting to a purpose. Most entrepreneurs, players, and anyone with a dream stop because they get bored of the process. Because too much hard sh*t gets in the way and they don't see a point in continuing to persevere through these barriers. I've been there recently with a few ventures in my business. "It seems like it's never going to happen." But the way I've been working on to continue to push through these obstacles is being very clear with what my purpose is. Why am I doing this? Why are you doing what you do? Do you have people depending on you who you can't let down? Do you have to be the best because you absolutely love your craft? Ask yourself what your purpose is and get very clear with it this week.
