Assist or Resist – Lessons from a Leader (post from Kirk Weisler)
John Houston Stockton – is a retired NBA basketball player who played his entire career for the Utah Jazz in the position of point guard. He led the NBA nearly every season in a statistic known as “Assists” which defined simply means – he was the last person to touch the ball before the player who actually scored points with it. Or said another way… he helped his team mates score more than any other player in the entire league helped their team mates score. To this day his record as the NBA’s all time assist leader stands at 15,806.
15,806 times John Stockton enabled his team mates to take the shot, score the points and look like heroes. For those reading this who ever watched him play… you know how quietly and remarkably he lead his team, and lived his life. I loved him. For more about him… click here.

Are you into – Resistance or Assistance?
Resistance says, “Take the day off.” Assistance says, “Go help someone have an easier day.”
Resistance is fueled by fear. Assistance is fueled by love.
Resistance doubts, pouts, whines, and sits on the couch. Assistance gives, shares, encourages, and makes deposits.
Today you will resist or you will assist.
Make the decision to win the resistance and assistance battle and challenge your team to do the same. It will make your environment a lot more productive.
Leadership Begins at Home, – What is one thing you can do to assist a team member today?
Make a difference today.
