The other day Kevin Durant, one of the best players in NBA today said, “It’s not about championships, it’s about developing my game.”
Of course everyone called BS on that because he famously left a losing team to go to a winning team.
After all that though, I feel him. I think he was being real.
I have an audio book app called Audible and Matthew McConaughey’s book “Greenlights” popped up in an ad. The first sentence in the description was a review quote along the lines of, “It was never about winning, it was about understanding.”
This is sort of the same sentiment. In the grand scheme of things, greater understanding leads to greater flow. And greater flow is related to greater purpose, which is far beyond a win or a loss.
