Talent Taints Expectations

A talented team carries a burden of expectation. Watching the Miami Heat play in four consecutive NBA finals is an achievement that any team can be proud of. Unfortunately, they only came out on top in half of those opportunities. Now there is talk of breaking up the team because they should win everything all of the time. This is an example of becoming a victim of your own success.

Success can taint expectations and trick us into unreasonable goals. Let’s not believe our own press. Let’s set reasonable goals based on what’s best for our team and not based on the expectations our talent brings.
