Great coaches and military leaders know their teams must train the same way they plan to fight.
Sloppy training? Sloppy behaviors.
Slow practice? Slow execution when it matters.
It always matters!
For those 8pm Warriors aspiring to run a department, division, or business someday, I offer this challenge:
Start acting like it now.
Like it or not, but you’re always training. You’re either training for something special or training yourself to be just like everyone else. What you do today affects who you become tomorrow.
Don’t wait until your best is needed. It’s needed now.
Years before it counted, some of the greatest people I know were leading themselves, pushing their limits, asking, listening, and learning. Some say that success happens when luck meets preparation.
Even when it doesn’t seem like anyone’s watching, be great.
Your day will come.
Have a preparation night,
