RIP: John Wooden
It was sad to hear of the passing of the legend John Wooden. Of course this can never be validated, but he may be the best coach, of any sport, ever. I don’t really follow basketball, and if I did I would be a Big 10 fan, so this is by no means a biased opinion. I using my bias, I would vote for Joe Paterno, but that’s another topic.
As with anyone such as this, the provide us with numerous quotes to learn and live by, and Mr. Wooden was no different. There are several, but this is one of my favorites:
“Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.”
It is easy to focus on the negative, instead of the positive. It is easy to focus on limits, without focusing on the vision. Every vision has a path forward. Some paths may wind and twist a little more than others, but closer to your vision is closer to your vision.
