Davidisms: The Most Important Shot in Any Sport - the Next One

Every athlete or leader knows this truth: The most important shot in any sport is the next one.

You can’t change yesterday. It has happened. It’s gone. What you can do is learn from what happened, and make a better and right decision in the moment. Now. In the present.

One very successful NFL quarterback was asked to define the reason for his extraordinary success. He simply responded, “Amnesia.” He had learned to forget the past play(s) and simply focus on the next one. He said that was the major reason for his greatness.

Paul points to this truth in Philippians 3:13-14. He is adjuring all followers of Jesus to not allow yesterday’s failures to derail you from the upward call of God in Christ.

In other words, don’t look back, but up!

Live in the moment. Seize the day! Enjoy what you have right now to the fullest.

Because the most important shot in life is the next one.
