Wooden on Leadership
Here's seven principles of leadership that he followed from his Dad, who Coach Wooden says is the major influence upon his famed Pyramid of Success and his leadership principles. So, here this tidbit from USA Today. Good stuff...
***John Wooden's father gave him a card when he graduated from elementary school. On it, his father wrote "his own personal Seven Point Creed" - practical advice that Wooden remembered all his life. It is:
1.) Be True to Yourself
2.) Make each day your masterpiece.
3.) Help Others
4.) Drink deeply from good books, including the Good Book.
5.) Make Friendship a fine art.
6.) Build a shelter against a rainy day.
7.) Pray for guidance, and give thanks for your blessings every day.
Wooden explains. "When Dad handed me the little 3X5 card he said, 'Johnny try and follow this advice and you'll do fine.' I've tried to live up to Dad's advice in my personal life and in my teaching, coaching, and leadership responsibilities. Dad is everywhere in this book."
