This is about the time in the NFL season when preaching about sticking to your process, embracing uncertainty, and letting variance swing its many different ways will go in one ear and right out the other. We’ve read it, practiced it, watched our weeks play out (for good or for bad), and here we are in Week 12, trying to maintain discipline and set ourselves up for a strong stretch run.

Knowing yourself better than anyone else is a strength. There aren’t two ways about it. Whether you know what you’re good at, or what you’re not so good at, they are equally valuable traits. Identifying these areas, and practicing and sharpening those skills is exactly where we want to be all season.

We’re building something great at OWS, and I continue to be encouraged by how sharp the content and conversations in this community are each week. Let’s ambush the leaderboards in Week 12 . . .
