The Wisdom of John Wooden... / by Stephen Cooper

From John Wooden “Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court”

I told my athletes in basketball, “I don’t care if you are tall, but I do care if you play tall.” It’s just another way of saying that I judged them by the level of effort they gave to the team’s journey. That’s the standard of measurement I used. I could also have told them, “Show me what you can do, don’t tell me what you can do.” Too often the big talkers are the little doers.

I think of this as I train my own clients.

My hope is that you show up on time and give it your all. Some days will be better than others, but push yourself.
