Excellence the Wooden Way
Today, a student-athlete told me, "I am a great multi-tasker!" I can watch TV, listen to my Ipod, cruise Facebook, send text, and study, all at the same time." I want to ask them if they could also prepare for a championship, while juggling all of those activities, yet, I bit my lip. Just can't help but wonder what Coach would think? What, would he say? How, would he respond?
Jon Gordon offers an inspirational story and real-world wisdom on what it takes to reach true excellence. If you want to be your best and prepare for a championship, Jon's new book Training Camp might be your ticket. He discusses how you and your team (your work team, school team, church team and family team) can achieve Excellence.
Be present in the moment. When it comes to completing a task, no matter what it is, there is no real secret. Just Be There! Be Present! Be Awake! Be Attentive! Be Passionate! And someday, you may have your very own One Shining Moment!
