Anyone can make easy decisions. It’s the tough decisions that make a true difference.
Monday night when Alabama changed their quarterback at halftime the coach had to know that if the change didn’t work out for him, he would never hear the end of it. Because it worked, people give him credit for being a genius risk taker.
Some would argue it is easier for the coach to make a decision like that since he had already won 5 national championships so he has earned a great deal of good will but I would argue it’s the the willingness to make these tough decisions that has allowed him to win all of these championships.
Those who are unwilling to make the tough decisions will rarely be the long term winner in any situation. This doesn’t the whole “nice guys finish last” thing but rather just being willing to do what has to be done, at the time it has to be done.
Have a great day!
