When we watch NFL football games we are watching the best of the best, and yet some teams seem overmatched. What makes one team so much better than the other. There are several factors, but I want to focus on just one that will help us to win at what we do.
Football is a lot like chess, you have to think ahead and know how your moves will cause your opponent to react–and what you plan to do when that happens. We can wait to see what happens next in our business or careers and then react to it, or we can strategize, plan, and then work to make things happen. The latter is better.
