    BASKETBALL TIP
    When you think of stealing a ball, you should think of stealing it from the air. Think of stealing a pass, not a dribble or a ball being held.

    Stolen passes often result in easy layups and not in fouls. Being alert to steal a pass is good, solid defense. It is being ready to dart out when the offense is careless or underestimates your quickness.

    Force a mistake and then go for the steal—from the air, not the player.


    LEADERSHIP LESSON
    “Ideas are ultimately worthless unless you activate them with focused and consistent action. The best leaders never leave the site of a good idea without doing something—no matter how small—to breathe some life into it. Lots of people have good ideas. But the masters become masters because they had the courage and conviction to act on ideas.”

    – Robin S. Sharma


    LIFE PRINCIPLE
    “Asking what makes someone successful is like asking which ingredient makes a recipe taste good. It’s not any single ingredient. It is the combination of many ingredients in the right proportions and in the right order—and the absence of anything that would ruin the mixture.”

    – James Clear
