    BASKETBALL TIP
    You don’t need to foul to get called for a foul; you merely have to look like you fouled.

    Therefore, avoid slapping down — it looks like a foul & can throw you off balance.

    Instead, slap up!

    Evade fouls, get leather touches & become a defender players hate playing against.


    LEADERSHIP LESSON
    Three basic things you can do to be a better leader:

    1. Encourage
    2. Instruct
    3. Involve yourself


    Encourage any time, all the time and as often as possible.

    Instruct carefully and intelligently before a mistake is made, not after.

    Involve yourself in things going on around you – observe & listen, and then respond accordingly.

    – PGC Founder, Dick DeVenzio (Think Like a Champion)


    LIFE PRINCIPLE
    “If you always put a limit on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.”

    – Bruce Lee
