    BASKETBALL TEACHING
    If you are on a team and you do not consider yourself a leader, you are failing to inject your talents and abilities sufficiently, and you are hurting your team.

    By not encouraging, not instructing and not involving yourself with your teammates, you are failing to help your team reach its potential.

    Simply put –– If you sit back and expect someone else to do it, a lot will never get done.

    ― Dick DeVenzio
    Founder of PGC Basketball


    LIFE LESSON
    “Whether we like it or not, we are puppets of our emotions.

    We make complex decisions by consulting our feelings, not our thoughts.

    Against our best intentions, we substitute the question, ‘What do I think about this?’ with ‘How do I feel about this?’

    So, smile! Your future depends on it.”

    – Rolf Dobelli


    EDUCATIONAL TIP
    Just minutes before five-year-olds figure out how to tie a shoe, they cannot do it.

    Think about that.

    They do not appear to be getting better at almost tying shoes. Usually they simply cannot get it – then they can!

    Course work is the same way.

    Sometimes you can go for several weeks not understanding then suddenly, it starts to make sense. Pieces of the puzzle begin to fit, and the whole picture begins to make sense.

    You just have to keep at it.

    The puzzle won’t present itself while you are rationalizing and making excuses. It will present itself while you are trying to make it make sense.
