Want to Win in Business? Focus on the Play (Not the Victory)
It seems counterintuitive that you could actually win more (in sports, life, or business) by shifting focus away from the victory. But Coach Bill Walsh (named the second greatest coach in NFL history by ESPN) did just that. Walsh focused on training his team to play with precision and celebrated every well-executed play, whether or not that play resulted in a score or a win. Likewise in business, the more we focus on the “plays,” the more successful we are as individuals and as leaders.
