CAN'T FOCUS ON PRIOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS/FAILURES
Bill BelichIck met with the Billy Donovan's Florida men's basketball team shortly before the SEC tournament. Showed them a video of the Breeders’ Cup (horse race) and paused the tape halfway through the race with the outcome still up in the air. He asked the team “Who will win? The horse with the most experienced jockey? The horse who has won the most money? The horse with the best odds prior to the race?” The team was puzzled, “No, it’s the horse that runs the best race from here on out.” You can’t focus on prior accomplishments/failures, you must only focus on the present and doing your best the next play.
