Get the back to the drawing board mug.
Sometimes you fight until the end and you lose. It's not an indicator that you need to go and change something, or fix something, and anybody that tells you that it is every time something goes wrong is full of shit. Sometimes things go wrong if you're human and not perfect. It's going to happen even if you have a dream team that wants to win every game. If you've been doing a good job, why you want to change even if someone else tells you that you need to?
Listening too closely to a guy that says a team needs to go back to the drawing boards or change something every time a team doesn't win is a goid way to guarantee that you will fuck up. Sometimes the hardest thing to do is resist a change when it seems like the obvious thing you should do, and it's also the thing that will get you through to the end. Change only gets you a revolving door, and a revolving door doesn't strengthen anybody, it weakens everybody.
