Travis Kelce Shares Game Changing Mentality Check

Actually, we enjoyed this note on aging, biz and strategy from a dude who is likely the best marketer playing with the Kansas City Chiefs right now as he transitions to life after football . . .

He says: "What's really kept me at the speed of the game has really been my mentality." Think about that sentence for a moment. Kelce is smart enough to know what many entrepreneurs also must learn--that if you're losing one form of competitive advantage, it's time to develop another.

Kelce explains: "It's really been how fast I can process things, how fast I can see things develop and have an answer, instinctually, right away." He may not be able to run as fast as he used to, he says. "But at the same time, I can move quicker and get somebody to think. So trying to stay ahead of the game, understanding what's going on on the other side of the ball so I play faster, understanding your opponent a little bit more."

Learning to compete by playing smarter as his body gradually loses its ability to play harder means Kelce must use his mind in the game in a whole new way. For example, he says he does a lot of film prep to better understand the opposing team, and a lot of study to better understand his own team's strategy.
