Real Success

A common mistake among those who work in sports is spending a disproportionate amount of time with x’s and o’s as compared to time spent with people. (Mike Krzyzewski, noted college basketball coach)

“Coach K” led his Duke University team to five national titles. He has coached more winning games than any other coach. When you think of him, you think of his ability to develop skillful players, but don’t overlook his success in developing value-driven leadership. What a challenge to recognize that he was more interested in his players as leaders than in their success as athletes.

I believe in your commands; now teach me good judgment and knowledge (Psalm 119:66).
