The mark of the superior thinker is his or her ability to accurately predict the consequences of doing or not doing something. The potential consequences of any task or activity are the key determinants of how important it really is to you and to your company. This way of evaluating the significance of a task is how you determine what your next frog really is.
Okay, let’s pose this question to Cutler. Your knee hurts, but it’s a championship game….do you take yourself out or stay in?
Oh, and what do we suppose the consequences will be if we wussy out?
“Scent of a woman..quote…”The consequences will be dire and by dire I mean….” Cutler didn’t want to “wussy out.” He wanted to be there. He was hurt, broken, and disappointed. Not at all a quitter.
How do I know this?
I was married to a professional athlete for close to 20 years. I watched him get back in the game with a split knees-cap. When the leg swelled to enormous proportion, he was taken out by his coach. Culter knew he couldn’t play anymore. For Christ’s sake…..a 2nd degree MCL is close to being torn. I bet no one reading this can know what that must feel like. (Unless you’ve been a professional athlete and unless you’ve been hurt in that way.) Walk a mile in someone elses moccasins. Then go whine to the world, fans.
