Make it a masterpiece



At the time of writing this our kids our on hols from school. Perfect extra time in the morning to just chill and set the tone for the day with them.

As they woke up this morning (two out of the three) we gave em a big hug and whispered in their ear.


“Remember to practice today and get a little bit better.”

Check this out from Wooden…


“When I was teaching basketball, I urged my players to try their hardest to improve on that very day, to make that practice a masterpiece.

Too often we get distracted by what is outside our control. You can’t do anything about yesterday. The door to the past has been shut and the key thrown away. You can do nothing about tomorrow. It is yet to come. However, tomorrow is in large part determined by what you do today. So make today a masterpiece. You have control over that.

This rule is even more important in life than basketball. You have to apply yourself each day to become a little better. By applying yourself to the task of becoming a little better each and every day over a period of time, you will become a lot better. Only then will you will be able to approach being the best you can be. It begins by trying to make each day count and knowing you can never make up for a lost day.”


With ARETE,

Sean
