The passing of a legend

A couple of days ago we lost a true legend. John Wooden passed away at the age of 99. Known by many as the former coach of the great UCLA basketball teams (and deservedly so with accomplishments such as winning 10 national championships including 7 in a row, 88 game winning streak and so many other accomplishments it’s truly mind boggling), the reality is he was much more than just a basketball coach.

The lessons he taught, which include his “Pyramid of Success” are truly life altering if truly understood and applied. Rather than try to explain his beliefs, I would like to encourage everyone to check out his official website at If you can read through that site and not get something of value out of it, I can assure you, there is nothing I could write that can make a difference. Take some time, read through the site, think about his values and even if you apply only one of his many beliefs, you will be a better person

Have a great day!
