Every Friday, I share with you one principle that has inspired me.
In this episode, I share with you one principle by Kobe Bryant: “Rest at the end, not in the middle.”
In our daily life, we have to make multiple decisions daily. It becomes really hard when you don’t have any key points based on what you will make that particular decision. Our understanding of the world around us is largely shaped by the core principles we have accepted. Principles recognize what is true and help us apply truth to new or unknown situations. A good set of principles will enable us to make decisions quickly, even if our situation is completely new.
Principles Friday will help you share the principles of successful entrepreneurs, founders, and big thinkers.

Happy Friday Everyone,
Welcome to Principles Friday, where I share one principle that can help you in your life and business.
Today we have on the show Kobe Bryant.
“Rest at the end, not in the middle.”
What an amazing principle.
Kobe Bryant was an American professional basketball player who is widely regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time. He spent his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and won five NBA championships with the team.
Kobe Bryant is known for his incredible work ethic and determination to succeed, and there are many examples throughout his career where he applied the principle of "Rest at the end, not in the middle."
One example is during the 2008 NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. The Lakers lost the first two games of the series and were facing a must-win situation in Game 3. Kobe had been struggling with fatigue and exhaustion due to the heavy workload he had taken on during the playoffs, but instead of resting in the middle of the series, he chose to push through and lead his team to victory. Although the Lakers ultimately lost the series to the Celtics, Kobe's willingness to push through and not rest in the middle of the series is a testament to his dedication and commitment to his craft.
In 2009, Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers returned to the NBA Finals and faced the Orlando Magic. This time, Kobe's commitment to not resting in the middle paid off as he led the Lakers to a championship.
Kobe Bryant’s principle is a powerful reminder to keep pushing forward and not give up in the midst of challenges and difficulties. We should work hard and persevere through any obstacles that come our way, knowing that we will have time to rest and reflect once we have accomplished our goals.
By focusing on the end goal and persisting through any challenges, we can build resilience, develop a strong work ethic, and ultimately achieve success. This prinicple can inspire us to stay motivated and keep striving towards our goals, even when the going gets tough.
Tragically, Kobe Bryant, along with his daughter Gianna and seven others, died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California, on January 26, 2020. His sudden and untimely death was a shock to the basketball world and beyond, and he is deeply missed by his fans, family, and friends.
That concludes it for this Friday.
Remember: “Rest at the end, not in the middle.”
