It actually was a little gloomy this morning. Misty, dark, cloudy.
A few ran, a few rucked. We did not see any Chupacraba’s along the greenway but we did hear a rooster.
We all finished.
Announcements: Convergence next Saturday at Folsom. Wear masks.
Prayers to all the Healthcare workers on the frontline for the past 9 months or so.
As Coconut Horse shifts away from Q Source for this year, we started with a lesson on Leadership from John Wooden. There are many books and anecdotes about Coach Wooden but one of my favorites is Wooden on Leadership and these lessons come from that:
-Before you can lead others, you must be able to lead yourself.
-Leadership success begins with a solid foundation.
-Do not fear failure or punish initiative.
-Never allow anyone else to define your success.
-Character stars with little things.
-Seek out opportunities to show you care.
-Remember that a good demonstration tops a great description.
-Seek players who will make the best team rather than the best players.
-Sloppiness breeds sloppiness.
-Remember that a great quarter in basketball or business starts with a great minute.
-Make sure all praise is genuine and appropriate.
-Believe in the hidden potential of all.
-Stop saying “no” and start asking “how”.
-Long term success requires short term focus.
-Always assume adversity.
I think these are great lessons and not the only nuggets from John Wooden. I would encourage you to look up his Pyramid of Success and his 7-Point Creed.
Come join us next week at Coconut Horse as we start a few weeks of studying the Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz.
Thanks for the opportunity to lead this morning.
Until the next one. Aye!
