Apr. 20 | The 3-Point Play
Learn to play in a way that fouls don’t bother you.
When you go for a shot, you have to assume that no foul will be called. When you dribble the ball someplace, you have to assume you will be bumped and be prepared for it.
You can’t play hoping the referee will notice why you missed or why you stepped out of bounds. You can’t rely on referees, you must rely on yourself.
Do things decisively, forcefully, prepared for the bumps and fouls that may or may not be called.
“Rule #1: Do the right thing. Have a plan, work the plan. Measure your results. Be accountable—see it; own it; solve it; do it.
Rule #2: Do the best you can. Turn problems into opportunities. Add value by becoming part of the solution. Act with a sense of urgency…Do it now! Ask the question: “What else can I do?” Ask for coaching: “What can I do better?” Reject average and “good enough.” Learn, correct, improve, and grow.
Rule #3: Show others that you care. Show respect. Say: “Please. Thank you. You’re welcome. I’m sorry.” Show and express appreciation. Have each other’s back (“I got you!”). Engage as a team.”
– Keith J. Cunningham
“In order to design successful habits and change your behaviors, you should do three things. Stop judging yourself. Take your aspirations and break them down into tiny behaviors. Embrace mistakes as discoveries and use them to move forward.”
– B.J. Fogg
