Superstition

If you don’t know, I am a fan of Nottingham Forest Football Club.

One of the greatest clubs in English and European football history. We’ve been to Europe, we’ve won the cup twice. An incredible achievement for a club so small.

In the early 90s, Forest went on an unbeaten run. 24 (if my memory serves) games unbeaten. 24 games without a defeat. That’s an entire season (although the run actually spanned two seasons).

And it’s all because of me.

I had these black and white puma trainers, a white hooded top and baggy raver trousers. And I wore them for all 24 of those games.

Then we played Blackburn, I couldn’t find my trousers, so wore something different and we got beaten 5-1.

Take action: What do you do to take control of situations that are out of your control?
