The NBA season started today and in the first game of the season, after young Boston star Jayson Tatum started complaining about a dodgy call, his coach, Brad Stevens yelled out to him, “Hey, next play!”

It’s great leadership and a great reminder to us all that there will be times when things don’t go our way.

Not every decision will go in our favour.

You will make mistakes.

You will feel justified in complaining about your circumstances.

When that happens, listen to coach Stevens.

Focus on the next play.

The next chance to utilise your skills.

The next opportunity to make a positive difference.

The next step that will take you closer to your goals.

Because you can’t change the past, but you can impact the future.
