Pyramid of Success
John Wooden, for those of you who do not know, was coach of the UCLA Bruins basketball team, and perhaps the greatest and best coach ever, in any sport.
Now I normally detest superlatives like I just uttered, but Coach Wooden was not only a phenomenal coach but also a phenomenal human being. And I say that, even though my 'storied' high school basketball career met the buzz saw of Coach Wooden's exacting standards. (And, anyway, Sidney Wilkes and Marques Johnson were better players than I ever could even dream of becoming.)
Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success? It has provided unfailing guidance to me, and to other people, over the decades -- and not just in sport. Check it out for yourself to see why I say that...
