Do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. John Wooden
John Robert Wooden (October 14, 1910 – June 4, 2010) was an American basketball player and coach. Nicknamed the “Wizard of Westwood,” as head coach at UCLA he won ten NCAA national championships in a 12-year period, including an unprecedented seven in a row. Within this period, his teams won a men’s basketball-record 88 consecutive games. Wooden’s streak of seven consecutive NCAA Championships is even more remarkable and impressive because to this day no other coach or school has won the tournament more than two consecutive years.

Good things take time, as they should. We shouldn’t expect good things to happen overnight. Actually, getting something too easily or too soon can cheapen the outcome.
If you do not have time to do it right, when will you find the time to do it over?
Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.
Success is never final. Failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.
- “its what you learn after you know it all that counts”
- Make each day your masterpiece.
- Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
- Don’t measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.
- If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over ?
