The Wizard Speaks

Been catching up on some summer reading lately (which explains the skimpy blog posts this month). My latest is “Wooden: A Lifetime of Observations and Reflections On and Off the Court.”Some of my favorite Wooden maxims:

“Do not mistake activity for accomplishment.”

“Big things are accomplished only through the perfection of minor details.”

“Ability gets you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.”

“Make sure team members are working with you, not for you.”

“Be interested in finding the best way, not in having your own way.”

“Don’t let making a living prevent you from making a life.”

“The best thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.”

“Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Character is what you really are; reputation is merely what you are perceived to be.”

“Acquire peace of mind by making the effort to become the best of which you are capable.”

“It is what you learn after you know it all that counts.”
