Have you ever seen a sports team that had a big lead and then adjusted their game to “protect” that lead? Of course, and what happens. Frequently, they let the opponent back in the game. What happens is, instead of playing to win, they start playing “not to lose.” And that’s a losing game. Break that idea by always keeping the pressure on. Among professionals, the difference between being a top performer and an average performer is small but the rewards are vastly different. By keeping the pressure on, you can ensure you’ll be on the receiving end of the rewards.
