In honor of John Wooden turning 100 this year, I’m doing a series on Wooden including tips for success.
Here’s his “Eight Suggestions for Succeeding” from Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations And Reflections On And Off The Court (which I highly recommend you read!).
- Fear no opponent. Respect every opponent.
- Remember, it’s the perfection of the smallest details that make big things happen.
- Keep in mind that hustle makes up for many a mistake.
- Be more interested in character than reputation.
- Be quick, but don’t hurry.
- Understand that the harder you work, the more luck you will get.
- Know that valid self-analysis is crucial for improvement.
- Remember that there is no substitute for hard work and careful planning. Failing to prepare is preparing to fail
