Bill Belichick’s Ridiculous Attention to Detail
Just like with Steve Jobs in the tech field, attention to detail can make all the difference in the world of sports as well.
Perhaps no one exemplifies this better than 6-time Super Bowl winning coach of the New England Patriots, Bill Belichick.
Danny Amendola, who played for the Patriots from 2013-2017 says that Belichick cares about everybody and everything in the Patriots organization.
“You might get the perception that he might not care or that he doesn’t say much to us just by what the media portrays him to be. But he cares,” Amendola said on ESPN’s NFL Insiders. “He cares. There’s not one thing that comes in the building that doesn’t come across his desk.”
This sort of attention to detail at the top has been a huge part of what has made the Patriots the most successful American sports franchise of the last two decades.
“His attention to detail is everything,” Amendola said. “That’s the drills that we practice in the offseason in OTAs. They all correlate to good football, and everything that we do is predicated around winning football games. It’s no secret.”
Having that kind of attention to detail can really make all the difference, no matter what industry or arena you are involved in.
