If you’ve ever questioned your ability, failed, had your confidence shaken or been told you can’t do something to the point where, against your better judgment, you almost believe that then I’ve got just the thing for you… Dark Horse. Track #3 on the new Aaron Watson album Red Bandana. If you’ve read my stuff […]

The other day I shared this quote from General Douglas MacArthur. Rules are mostly made to be broken and are too often for the lazy to hide behind. Focus on the second half of that. We often hide behind rules because it’s more convenient than doing the right thing or we fear “bending” the rule […]

Yesterday I wrote to you about General Douglas MacArthur. Namely his propensity for breaking the rules. You know who has a lot in common with MacArthur? Believe it or not… Walt Freakin’ Disney. He broke the rules too. BIG TIME. Before Disney World, amusement parks were non-existent. There were merely traveling carnivals that would temporarily […]

My daughter is an athlete. She plays on a school team, a rec team and a travel team. She’s got a couple different coaches and they both know my background as a former college coach of 12 years and as a leadership expert who now works with numerous professional and college teams. That’s where their […]

Every college team I worked with in 2018-2019 made it to the NCAA Tournament. On top of that one was a quarter finalist, one went to the Elite Eight and another won the National Championship. The common denominator isn’t me. Its smart leaders who have secure enough egos to bring in an outside voice. I […]

Yesterday morning I was talking to Adam Todd who is one of the members of my Yesterday’s Underdog community. Adam’s a college coach and while we were discussing books, I commented to him that it’s a shame nobody reads anymore today. He quickly corrected me saying his players read a lot… …they read their text […]

In case you missed it, yesterday’s email was all about how “Shooters Shoot”. One thing I left out about great shooters is that great shooters surround themselves with other great shooters. Case in point, Allen Iverson loved playing with Kyle Korver when they both were on the Philadelphia 76ers roster. Why? Because Korver is the […]

As a dad in his forties, I’m not exactly Mr. Pop Culture (nor am I cool if you ask my teenage kids). So when a client said this expression to me I actually had to go look it up on Urban Dictionary… “Shooters Shoot” Which the great American philosophers at Urban Dictionary define as meaning: […]

The other day I showed you why you should be a business, man…. Like the great American philosopher Jay-Z. This is more of a cautionary tale why you shouldn’t be like Montero Lamar Hill aka Lil Nas X (yeah that’s actually the name the dude goes by). Not to be confused with the rapper Nas […]
