Every Shot Counts
A free-throw in the first quarter is worth just as much as a freethrow in the 4th quarter. Just like the 6th day of a project is just as important as the day before the release. Don’t fool yourself by thinking near deadline decisions “count” more than decisions you made earlier. I actually feel it’s the exact opposite, because consequences from early decisions lead to tougher decisions down the line. In short, the game is always on the line. A shot made in the first minute of the second quarter is just as important as a shot made in the fourth.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. — Aristotle
Being good under pressure is sometimes a sign of mental weakness. I think it’s similar to procrastination, where people need a deadline to inspire them. The reality is they are mentally weak to get the job done until the last possible minute. I want to be more focused on being consistent than being clutch, because the more consistent I am the less clutch I have to be.
