On Reflecting After Losses, Mentor Leaders, and Defining Moments
May 18 | The 3-Point Play
After you lose a game, take time to think. Ask yourself questions like:
Did you give your best physical effort?
Were you fully tuned into the game mentally?
What did the other team do to confuse you or to make it difficult?
Can you use that on someone else in the next game?
There are a lot of questions to ask yourself after a loss, and those should come in place of the more common comments like “The referees were terrible” or “The coach was stupid”.
Good players think. Especially after a loss. That’s how they learn not to lose very often.
“Engage, educate, equip, encourage, empower, energize, and elevate.
Those are the methods for maximizing the potential of any individual, team, organization, or institution for ultimate success and significance.
Those are the methods of a mentor leader.”
– Tony Dungy
“If you’re struggling to make a transition, create a defining moment that draws a dividing line between Old You and New You.”
– Chip Heath

3-Point Play: On violence, the power of ‘we’, and doing everything in your power
Fake like you really are going, move like you really are in a hurry, sprint the way you would if a hive of bees were suddenly on your tail and dart the way you would if you were just about to step on a large, hungry snake.
3-Point Play: On momentum swings, focusing on the task at hand, and being selectively committed
A good rule: When the other team scores two consecutive baskets, slow down the game, throw more passes and keep them on defense longer until the momentum breaks.
3-Point Play: On jockeying, doing what you say, and overcoming adversity
Get open or get out of the way, but do not stand in a prime receiving position moving your body back and forth a step at a time going nowhere and clogging the area.
