John Woodens mindful existence

I felt that if [the players] were prepared, we would do just fine. If we won, great — frosting on the cake. But at no time did I consider winning to be the cake. Winning has always been the frosting that made the cake a little tastier.

Remember, results aren’t the criteria for success — it’s the effort made for achievement that is most important.
.
.
Happiness begins where selfishness ends.
.
.
Do not permit what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.
.
.
Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today.

I grew up on a farm. We learned that there was a season to plant, a season to water, and season to harvest. The planting and watering could be laborious, but without those stages, there would never be a harvest.

Mindfully, I give you one of the greatest coaches that ever lived. He never yelled at his players or spoke of winning.

.
Goals are fleeting, effort and character endure.
