On Patience, Real Leaders, and Giving Your Full Attention
Sept. 22 | The 3-Point Play
Few players develop a good balance between patience and initiative.
You can improve your patience and make your initiatives more effective (on court) by constantly asking yourself:
- Should I have tried that?
- Should I have taken that shot?
- Should I have hoped to slip that ball in there by a few inches?
It’s not a perfect formula, but a special player knows how to strike the balance between knowing their limitations and when to push the boundaries beyond them.
Real leadership isn’t telling people what to do and watching them do it. You don’t need a leader to do that; a mere sign (on the wall) will suffice.
Real leadership takes thought and sensitivity and character and effort. Sometimes you have to listen, sometimes educate, sometimes be patient, sometimes struggle and strain.
True leadership typically begins when you find yourself in the muck of a discouraging situation. In fact, true leaders bring their rubber boots, wade into the muck, and stay awhile.
True leaders lead from the front.
– Dick DeVenzio (Think Like a Champion)
“Balance is timing, not intensity. It is not doing multiple tasks at 80%, but developing the skill of turning it on and turning it off. Sleep fully, then work intensely. Focus deeply, then relax completely. Give each phase your full attention.”
– James Clear

3-Point Play: On being available, 100% committed, and breathing away the fear
One of the chief assets of a good player is the ability to play the game constantly available to the ball. Unfortunately, many players stand 40 feet from the ball and just watch the action.
