There is no better way to see how attuned you are to that little voice inside than on the basketball court*. Hundreds of decisions are made across the brain and heart in milliseconds. Cutting down the middle, faking a left, then going right and dunking requires more than a million decisions across the cerebellum, frontal lobe and that thing above your stomach–your heart. Self-doubt plays out in real time on the court. You can’t should I? on the court. By the time you should I?, the play is over. Life works the same way. Step into life the way a ball player steps onto the court–trusting the most reliable playbook in the world–that little voice inside. Without a second thought.
* I am a basketball player. I am. I was never all that good, but I love the game fervently. It has taught me more life lessons than The Alchemist.
