Seeing It Their Way
So much energy is spent on dysfunctional teams lobbying for method. Great teams draw up a play and never doubt who gets to shoot the ball when everything is at stake. When Michael Jordan has the ball in his hands with seconds on the clock, it’s best just to get out of the way and be grateful you’re on his team. Ego is what limits teams in the biggest moments. Not that egotistical arguments break out in critical times, but the precious time that could be better spent on preparation is wasted on political games and unnecessary ego-based arguments. Great teams are efficient when it matters most, both in preparation and execution, because everyone knows who gets the final shot before they take it.
