“If you are persistent you will get it. If you are consistent, you will keep it.” Our teams at Four Pillars Executives are well aware of what it means to be consistent in your approach as well as how important practice is. These concepts were driven home this past Saturday when we had the chance to watch one of the most anticipated fights of the year, McGregor vs. Mayweather.
Successfully advertised, the McGregor vs. Mayweather fight came about after they each began to challenge each other’s respective fighting styles. With one being a boxer and the other a mixed martial arts fighter, these two different styles require years to master. However, for this fight McGregor was given approximately three weeks to learn enough boxing skills to beat a man who in his career was 49 and zero. This record showcases how consistent Mayweather is in his fighting style and the way he approaches a fight. He consistently practices, and uses what he knows will get him a win. This presented a major challenge for McGregor, who was going out of his MMA world where the rules are different. This was also his downfall during the fight. Three weeks proved to be too short a time for McGregor to master key boxing concepts such as making sure to always block your face, and no hammer punches. In addition, his lack of endurance was the deciding factor in McGregor’s loss to Mayweather.
While we at Four Pillars appreciate the challenge McGregor posed on himself to learn and try something new, we also know that this is a prime example of how consistently and persistence will always win. In our office, we have a standard set of information each of our team members needs to know in order to do their job. They are encouraged to utilize this information in a consistent way every day. This constant practice is the key to mastery of our systems.
We hope you had as much fun watching the fight as we did!
