This a great commercial. Although the subject is tennis this applies to hockey and football also ( and maybe lots of others sports I’m not thinking of) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeHLbDUt_64&feature=player_detailpage Take a minute and watch.
PS- thanks to my friend Michelle Amidon from USA Hockey for the forward.
This is great piece written by Anthony Donskov that I wanted to share:
I am a strength and conditioning coach, not a cheerleader, rep counter, weight loader, scientist or lab technician. I am a motivator, not a babysitter, amateur psychologist, or boot camp instructor. I will not treat all athletes the same! I will treat athletes the way they deserve and earn to be treated. I believe in determination, sacrifice, attention to detail, respect for those that have walked before me, passion, team spirit, and good old-fashioned sweat and hard work. Lou Holtz once said: “No one has ever drowned in sweat.” I believe there are NO limits to greatness: no ceiling, or rooftop. “I believe that personal greatness is measured against ones own potential, not against someone else on the team or elsewhere” (Coach Wooden). I am not a fad, fashion or preacher. I am an educator, teacher, and role model. I am a Coach!
I don’t usally blog about TV but The Sing Off is the best show on TV. Check out this clip of Urban Method doing Love the Way You Lie. I am not a rap fan but, what a performance. Just keep reminding yourself, NO INSTRUMENTS!
A had a revelation today. Even successful people don’t read enough. If you don’t have the time to read or, don’t read well, listen more ( buy or take out audiobooks). I’m not bragging but I went through about 6 months worth of blog posts to try to get a handle on what I have read or listened to lately and came up with these suggestions. If you are a regular reader, you may have heard these already but, they bear repeating.
Talent Code – Daniel Coyle
Talent is Overrated – Geoff Colvin
First Break All the Rules- Marcus Buckingham
Training Soccer Champions – Anson Dorrance
These are just a few to start you off. In any case, get started.
My friend Robert Dos Remedios ( Coach Dos to most of you) sent me this. I do not believe he wrote this however I don’t have any idea who did. If you read it and it was you, email me and I’ll give you credit.
