Tuesday Thoughts And Football


Hi Friends, What did you implement last week? I am interrupting the series of what I learned from my brother's life with a little football excursion. Now, I literally know nothing about the game, so I asked some people who know and love the game for some insight. 1) Usually the goal takes multiple plays to reach. JN If that isn't life, than what is? As good as it is to have a clear life goal, we need to accept that it takes multiple times, lots of effort and energy and a continued eye on the goal to achieve it. What is one of your life goals? 2) One of the intriguing aspects of football is the transformation of the fundamental skills of catching and throwing and running that anybody can do, mastered through repetition to a level that the rest of us only dream of. JN What my friend doesn't know is that I have not mastered the basic skill of throwing and catching a football ;) But, back to the point. Mastery of a basic skill is what sets these players apart. It's what set David apart with his harp playing. It is what can set us apart in whatever field we choose to serve. Someone said that mastery of a skill takes 10,000 hours. So, if I only dedicate one hour a day to master a skill, it will take me 27.25 years. Just doing some math, so we really need to up the game if we want mastery. What is one thing you want to get better at? 3) Most scoring is in the final quarter. RH There are so many parallels I could draw from this. Like the nun who started competing in marathons and then did iron runs. She started in her late 50's and is now called the Iron Nun. Like Julia Child, the chef, author and television personality who published her first book at age 50. That seems young actually, as I have passed the 50 year old mark. Toni Morrison, an acclaimed novelist, did not become known until becoming the first African American woman to win the Nobel Prize for literature at age 62. Colonel Harland Sanders didn't start franchising his fried chicken restaurant chain until he was 65. Seeds take time to grow and mature. We are so restless sometimes. What do you see yourself accomplishing in the 4th quarter of your life?

Both teams half way through the game go to the locker rooms to rest and reset. In “halftime” the coach will be motivational as teams regroup and come up with a plan to get better during the second half of the game. DK


We definitely get second chances in life, don't we? If you want to be like a football player, get yourself a good coach! Coaches do more than motivate, they help you bring out the best, build on your strengths, celebrate the wins, and regroup and reset when needed. We also need break times to gather strength for the win and strength to keep fighting. It is not an everlasting supply, you actually need to be careful not to overdo it and to refuel at times.

How do you regroup? Where do you get strength? Why not hire a life coach?


As you are ready to watch the Super Bowl soon, keep setting goals, master your skills, give yourself time, and gather your strength.
