There is power when a vision creates a team that is working together. Maybe it’s just me, but when a team works together it is a wonder to behold. I could be wrong, but when I watched the Western Conference Finals of the NBA last night, it seemed that Oklahoma City was a team whose time has come. The San Antonio Spurs appeared out of sync. Starting Manu Ginobli was a sign of desperation. I think Coach Popovich pulled out all of the stops to create a winning formula. He was almost correct. If the Spurs win he is a genius. But they did not win. Why? Maybe they felt the desperation communicated by the coach.
The Thunder on the other hand played with crazy wildness. The fact that they made some impossible shots is a testament to the fact they took impossible shots. They played with courage. Or maybe they played with the same desperation as the Spurs, but the game came down to this fact. The Oklahoma City Thunder has one more spurt, one more run, one more made shot than the Spurs. In the end, one more made shot is the difference between winning and losing.
If you find yourself in a battle for your vision, what can you do? Can you pull a team together? Can you create a compelling vision—a clear mental picture of a desired outcome? Can you put together a good strategy? Can you put forth strong effort? And above all else, put together at least one more good run than your opponent? Maybe that will be enough to be a winner. We shall see what the next game holds.
