There is nothing I relish more than a “fast break”. I love the way that we can turn a rebound into a few deft passes and race the opposition to a slam dunk.
Carpe diem ! Sieze the day!
Can you take the Fast Break when it comes?
The conditions are right. The rewards are there.
Are we organized to dispatch our fast break specialist, take that rebound and pass it down the court, with ball and fast break specialist arriving together – right foot down, left down, into the air, done! 2 points?
Are we organized?
Well, there are the permanent spectators in life. There are some who have a go, but don’t really get it.
And there are some who understand the game. They get ready in advance. They practice with others. And when the opportunity breaks, they are running immediately, moving at speed in coordination with their prepared team, and they score. Sweet!
What are you ready for?
1. What is the equivalent of the ball and the equivalent of the basket in your business? 2. What do you win by putting the ball in the basket?
And when you can tell me that, tell me this.
- 3. Who is working with you? 4. And who must you outpace to pull this off?
- 5. What is the signal that sends the fast-break specialist off? 6. Who is taking the ball off the back-board? 7. Who is the play-maker (mid-fielder) in the middle?
- 8. When do you train together? 9. When do you celebrate your wins? 10. How long will you play together?
10 questions . . . oh, but do remember this is a game. When we are straining too hard, to get this done, it is time for a coffee break to think again.
