Sunday, I watched another Super Bowl become history. I've watched all 40 of them. Some were terrific games, others so - so.
In this game, it was obvious that both teams were as physically prepared as they could be. So why was Pittsburgh the winner? Contrary to the grousing I might hear on the left side of the country, it was not about bad calls by the refs. Pittsburgh won because they were better prepared mentally. Seattle lost because of mental mistakes.
So let me ask you. Are you mentally prepared each morning to run your business at the peak of your game? This isn't a practice game you're playing, pilgrim. It's the real thing. In business, no one has to lose. Do it right and everyone wins.
If you aren't prepared, who will be? In your business, you set the standard that all others use to gauge their performance. Be ready to score at every opportunity.
