We are learning to win!

We are learning to win!

Several years ago, I had lunch with NBA Coach Scott Brooks, and my notes came up in my memories today; they are just as relevant then as they are now:

  1. Never accept NO as it relates to your dream
  2. Create a BURNING desire to get to your goals and break them down into DAILY activities
  3. Can’t is not a word. There is always a way… get resourceful and figure it out
  4. Character counts: being a good role model of integrity, honesty, and giving back all matter.
  5. Don’t be afraid to have tough conversations even with your superstars
  6. Focus on the process and the activity. When going through a losing streak, we focused on the fundamentals and the mental state of “we are learning to win!”

When focused on the proper daily activities, the results will happen.
