This week’s #WednesdayWisdom comes from DGMindset (video here):

 

In basketball they have a shot clock – the ball has to hit the rim within that set amount of time. As the clock ticks down….if you haven’t shot the ball, you’ll get impatient – and you’ll just throw something up. Usually this isn’t a good quality shot.

 

In your life, turn off the shot clock.

 

Stop thinking that progress should be in a certain amount of time. It’s not about how fast you’re moving. It’s about how much momentum you are gaining and how much progress are you making.

 

Stop worrying about how long and start focusing on the quality of the progress you are making and just keep moving in that direction (aka Keep Playing!).

 

By concentrating on what we can control and the quality of our daily habits, efforts, and impact, we can break free from the heaviness of unrealistic deadlines and expectations.

 

As we bid farewell to 2023 and step into 2024 – let’s prioritize the gain over the gap and quality over quantity.
