Jan. 19 | The 3-Point Play
Instruct before a mistake is made. Not after.
If you want to instruct in a way that is really going to help your team, you need to instruct before the bad thing happens, before the play takes place.
Then the teammate you instruct will take your instruction as encouragement and as a reminder, and they will be grateful to you after the play instead of irritated.
― Dick DeVenzio

Remember…start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone. Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often. But if you take some risks, step up when times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden, and never, ever give up—if you do these things, then you can change your life for the better… and maybe the world!
– Admiral McRaven
The people you associate with have a major impact and influence on your personal success.
You can often tell where most people are going to end up in life simply based on who they hang around.
So try this – associate higher.
Doing so will expand your mind to greater possibilities.
It is natural to feel most comfortable with people who are like you, and that’s OK.
But now and then it’s good to step outside of your comfort zone and spend time with friends who can expose you to greater things, new information and a higher level of living.

3-Point Play: On ducking out of sight, uncovering your potential, and training your attitude
Players trying to get open to receive a pass too often jockey back and forth, working very hard but not really going anywhere.
3-Point Play: On “FAT” defense, making courageous decisions, and passion vs. fear
FAT can be anything that indicates to the player with the ball that you are about to do something that you are not really about to do.
3-Point Play: On click passes, scattering sunshine, and keeping your promises
The only way you can make a click pass is to know before you get the ball what you are going to do with it.
