As a kid I grew up playing baseball, football, soccer, tennis and running track, so, when I think of an achievement I think of sports. There is usually a goal in mind. Not just winning. Breaking down the event into little parts and accomplishing each small task the best way possible. A 4 x 100 relay requires a quick start, smooth handoffs and a strong kick to the finish line. You can’t win a baseball game unless each fielder sees the ball and catches the ball. The hitter has to know the situation, anticipate the pitch, see the ball and hit the ball where the other guy ain’t. So achievement is not the finish line… it’s the outcome of all the steps in between. The beauty of sports is that you get to see those steps played out on the field in front of you. Beautiful, challenging and entertaining to see.
