Bill Belichick and Tom Brady’s philosophy for success is something worth practicing everyday.
Ever wonder what makes the Patriots’ organization so great?
Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and The Pats played their ninth Super Bowl and won, making Tom Brady one of the best quarterbacks ever in the game, and now that he’s announcing his exit as a Patriot, we can’t help but study the philosophy that placed him there and pushed him to mere excellence.: Bill Belichick’s“Do your job!”
This lesson is really worth learning, not because it comes from Belichick, which is also a strong-point, but more because it can be practiced daily and prove a quick impact on our daily lives, athlete or not. It offers a new and easy way to establish a winning culture with a simple mindset. Elegant in its simplicity, but extremely effective when reinforced, the message strengthens trust and leads to greater accomplishments. “Do Your Job!” means being prepared, working hard, practicing compassion, working for a greater goal, paying attention to detail, and putting the team first.
It’s easy: Bill does not ask for extraordinary. He, more than anybody, knows the game, he understands an inch can make the difference, and all it takes is your compromise, clarity for the goal, and the sole desire to achieve it. Because if you do your job correctly, and your colleagues do the same, the result begins to build, it strengthens, it becomes possible.
A lesson to all
We’ve all thought Tom Brady to be supernatural or something, as he is undoubtedly one of the best to ever throw a football.
But truth is, he understands Bill’s lesson to the fullest. He is a great thinker with the ball, but he is absolutely confident his teammates will “do their job”, and the results are there to see. It has driven them to the biggest stage of all. Even in the dictionary, effort comes before success. The Patriots´success is not a chance by destiny, it’s earned.
