This is not what it means to pivot. Lol!

If you know anything about the sitcom FRIENDS, then you should get a really great visual of the cast carrying a couch up the stairs and Ross yelling, PIVOT, PIVOT, PIVOT! If you haven’t seen this, trust us, it’s worth doing a google search and watching the YouTube clip of that segment. We are excited to bring you this edition of your Weekly Winning Resource, and if you haven’t guessed, our winning word this week is, pivot. Although, we can get a laugh from hearing Ross yell pivot while moving an oversized couch up the stairs, this isn’t exactly what it means to pivot. At least not as it relates to goals and dreams anyway. Pivoting isn’t plan b, it’s a part of the process. It’s a change in the strategy, but it doesn’t change the vision. The term pivot is used mostly in basketball, as a play that can allow the player to escape a critical situation. It gives the player an option versus losing the ball. Essentially, they must pivot or risk failure. This is what we mean at I’ve Decided when we use the term “to pivot”. We believe this is where many of us find ourselves going into 2021, companies and individuals alike. The environment is drastically different and we may need to pivot to prevent our dreams and goals from dying. The word pivot seems to have been the word of the year for 2020, but we don’t see it losing momentum in this New Year. The two most consequential areas to pivot are, the shift from in person to online, and the low morale that is affecting us all. At I’ve Decided, our mission is your success and we know that when you are in a critical situation, feeling overwhelmed, or feel backed in a corner, it’s time to pivot. Remember, pivoting doesn’t mean you’re changing the destination. The ball is still going to make it to the basket, you just need to rotate and take a different angle.

Your Weekly Winning Word:


To turn or rotate on a central point.

In the game of basketball, the player has only a second or two to make the decision to pivot, and then once his other foot hits the ground he has 3 steps to shoot. When it’s time for a pivot play in your life, it’s not time to sit and ponder about it for too long. It’s time to make a change, readjust, and go for it. To pivot is crucial for success.
