Pass, Shoot or Dribble - It's that easy.

It's tempting to sit in the corner and work towards some imaginative reality of what we think is going on in our industry or workplace. We freeze and worry about the budget, the strategy that needs to shift, the different people you need to recruit and the people you need to retain. Pass, shoot or dribble...

Pass the ball...

to someone who can do something different or better than you what you are doing. Let them pass, shoot or dribble. Involving others will help you win with a tight budget or retain people who need to be in the game. Pass the ball to people who can make your imagination more vivid and real.

Shoot the ball...

and make the shot. The worse that can happen is that you miss the shot but follow-up for the rebound to increase your chances of getting the ball back. In business this is called follow-up. Follow-up on your strategy to see if the shots are working. Are you following-up on the shots you take?

Dribble the ball...

to another part of the court to get a different view. This will change your reality of the position you are in and the people you can work with. Having a better view helps your vision. Having a good vision will help you see what is ahead or around the corner.

The problems you face are difficult but the solutions are not always that hard. Pass. Shoot. Dribble. Your role is not to sit back and watch. You have the ball today, will you pass, shoot or dribble?
