There will come a time in all of our lives and careers where we will need to make a change. Whether that means shifting your academic focus early in life or your organizational focus after you’ve established your career, we would all do well to become masters of the pivot. In basketball, pivoting is helpful because it allows you to shift your direction and create an advantage relative to your defender. You remain anchored in place, but with a fresh direction you can often see a clearer path to the basket. This week on the podcast, David and Shane discussed what they call the 5 “M’s” of pivoting: Mission, Methods, Momentum, Means, and Membership.
