Some thoughts on how taking on a challenge of shooting 100 free throws relates to business.
Lesson 1: Practice challenges. Things that are hard for you to do. (I am terrible at shooting a basketball) Get used to building resilience finishing tasks that don't come easily to you.
Lesson 2: One or two quick wins doesn't mean that it will be followed up by more wins. Success in business, philanthropy and even sport is more about how you handle yourself when faced with adversity than how you handle yourself when faced with a clear run of wins.
Lesson 3: Delayed gratification. The goal is to shoot 100 free throws, so before trick shots, resting and mucking around take place, we need to make sure that we finish the 100 shots. You earn your down time in life, business and on the field. You get a breather when you have achieved what you set out to achieve, not when you feel like the clock tells you to have a break.
Lesson 4: Honesty and Accountability. I like to do these challenges on my own. When there is no one there to make sure I practice building accountability only to myself. It is so easy to call it a day early, to lie and tell everyone I did 100 when I didn't or did it faster than I did it. Owning your goals and holding yourself accountable when no-one else is around is a vital skill towards achieving success!!
