Pass or Shoot

🌱 This post is in the growth phase. It may still be useful as it grows up.

When you stop dribbling in basketball, you have to pass or shoot.

You can’t make a little progress, pause and ponder, and then pick up the play.

The game continues, and you just cut your options by a third. It’s now time to pass or shoot.

In my career — and as a creator — I’ve paused when I should have played. I believed that if I couldn’t drive it all the way — myself — I could pause and see what happened. And I’d lose to the clock.

I want to do things differently this time. If I pause, I need to pass or shoot. Trust my team or trust my self and make the play.
