Are you playing to win?
Suzette and I were driving back to our hotel after finishing up a workshop in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Colts-Patriots AFC Divisional Playoff game was on the radio.
The game was a classic battle between rivals…and two of the best quarterbacks ever- Manning & Brady.
The game unfolded into a BAD day for Indianapolis.
The Patriots won 20-3.
Just before halftime, I remember hearing, “Rather than playing to win, it seems like the Colts are playing not to lose.”
For me, it was an “ah-ha” (2X4) moment.
I can still hear those words…
I’ve been playing to win ever since.
Here’s the deal:
Playing “not to lose” simply DOESN’T work- especially as our environment continues to accelerate.
You’re either exceptional…or you’re mediocre.
And as a person- how you do anything is how you do everything.
So- are YOU playing to win…or playing not to lose?
It’s YOUR choice (in every aspect of life).
Have a week that MATTERS.
