Playing to win or playing not to lose?
Business, politics, sports or life in general is all about giving it your best shot, and the way you go about it separates the personalities among us.
Play to win, an offensive attacking response can be just as effective as playing not to lose (defensive) depending on the circumstances. A media article today by stellar Australian soccer coach, Ange Postecoglou of A-League club Melbourne Victory illustrates the concept in an effective manner.
Making the stand of how we “play the game” is up to each individual to decide as the circumstances dictate, and sometimes it may be advisable to play both styles if that is what’s required.
Isn’t life similar?
