Perfect Days

John Wooden, the legendary basketball coach at UCLA, was one of the best coaches ever.  Many say the absolute best coach ever.  In my personal learning, I frequently come across his messages and/or teaching techniques as they are cited in references from prolific leaders and authors.  His approach and the applied value they offer are tremendous.  Most everything that has been published from his work is worthy of your personal learning investment.

I remember first reading about Coach Wooden as an undergraduate student decades ago when first learning to coach and to teach.  Those early messages and the applied value that they have instilled in me has offered great dividends.  They still today resonate with me, especially when building new programs and when investing with others to develop improved skills that will help them grow professionally.

One particular Wooden quote that I believe may add tremendous value for you as an applied learner and coach is as follows:  “You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.”      — John Wooden —

Have many perfect days.
