I learned how to win
Mar 12, 2009Posted by admin

Sure winning is great.  One of my idols, the legendary Vince Lombardi once stated that  “Winning isn’t everything–but wanting to win is.”  After reading that quote what else can one say.  Plenty if you are a competitor. 

Winning means that you and the team have put together a successful strategy as well as executing the plan that generated results.  Does this sound like a successful plan for the assertive business professional.  You bet it does.  Being prepared as well as executing the plan equals successul both on the field and in business and this is why I believe  Everything I Ever Needed To Know About Business I Learned On The Sports Field!

And one last thought that Coach Lomardi leaves for those who dare to care about outcomes: “If it doesn’t matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?”  I guess that says it all!  Thanks Coach.

When I read all that you write and think about all you are doing for family, friends and as EVERYONE , SPORTS, HOFSTA and so on I find it mind-boggling. Your a person and son to be SO VERY PROUD OF AND I AM.
