Common Sense Killer: Undisciplined
A lack of training is not always the cause of a departure from common sense practices. It’s difficult to keep common sense practices in place over time. They make sense intellectually but take intentionality and discipline to maintain. Most teams renew their zeal for common sense following a preventable catastrophe. Everyone has heard a coach say that his team just needs to go back to the basics. This implies that over time they have departed from what are considered basic principles. Often, the discipline to do things right every time is the determining factor between successful and unsuccessful teams.
