September 21 | The 3-Point Play
Good players don’t strive for great plays.
Great plays come to them occasionally, but only when they are in the process of concentrating on their job, trying to do all the little things right.
Good players are not gamblers— they are performers.
That is why great plays are not what make an outstanding player. It is knowing limitations.
“Leadership is about empowering other people as a result of your presence—and making sure that impact continues into your absence.
Your job as a leader is to create the conditions for the people around you to become increasingly effective, to help them fully realize their own capacity and power. And not only when you’re in the trenches with them, but also when you’re not around, and even after you’ve permanently moved on from the team.”
– Frances Frei
“Remember that this moment is not your life, it’s just a moment in your life. Focus on what is in front of you, right now. Ignore what it “represents” or it “means” or “why it happened to you.”
– Ryan Holiday

3-Point Play: On ducking out of sight, uncovering your potential, and training your attitude
Players trying to get open to receive a pass too often jockey back and forth, working very hard but not really going anywhere.
3-Point Play: On “FAT” defense, making courageous decisions, and passion vs. fear
FAT can be anything that indicates to the player with the ball that you are about to do something that you are not really about to do.
3-Point Play: On click passes, scattering sunshine, and keeping your promises
The only way you can make a click pass is to know before you get the ball what you are going to do with it.
