Read Full Transcript

This is a video about the importance of adjustments, and I'm going to use an example actually several examples from sports. Now, the most notable recent example came in last year's NBA Finals. So, The Golden State Warriors are playing the Cleveland Cavaliers for the championship. They're down two games to one and they decide to bench their starting center, move a forward into the center position and a bench player up into a starting role. Basically going small against the bigger team. They couldn't match up for size, so they decide to go extreme small. The result is from being down two games to one, they win the championship four games to two.
In football, at half time, teams make adjustments every single week. They've seen what's working and what isn't working. And they make defensive adjustments. They make offensive adjustments in order to compete more effectively. works all the time.
Baseball pitchers throwing a fastball. The pitcher out there who just doesn't have it on this particular day and, lo and behold, you change up for a slider pitcher because they're sitting on the fastball so you give him a different look. And instead of being an over the top pitcher (Himover the top, meaning they're throwing from up here) you are now throwing from a different angle. And, lo and behold, teams come back and win all the time.
