The Cats Bounce Back

Hi there,

I’m lucky enough to be from Kilkenny.

Which means I was a happy man yesterday as they won the All Ireland Hurling Final for a record 33rd time.

Some of the greatest players who ever lived are playing now for Kilkenny yet the one person who really makes the biggest difference is the manager, Brian Cody.

Here’s what man of the match, JJ Delaney said about Brian Cody yesterday:

“Every player, every defender, every man knew what job he had to do. He (Cody) said, ‘right, you have to do that. X, Y and Z’ and that is your job for today. Everyone knew what was going to happen. He is just a great man.”


There is obviously a lot more to Brian than just the above, but it gives us a clue to the team’s success.

They had a game plan and everyone knew exactly what they had to focus on. And it worked because they shut out Tipperary’s star players.

Do you have a game plan?

Do you know your X, Y and Z for your life and business?  (i.e. your top priorities)

Does everyone on your team know their X,Y and Z?

If you answered no to any of the above questions, what can you do about it this week?

Have a great week,
