Details Matter When Creating Patterns of Success
By Gene Coleman, Ed. D., RSCC*E
Being on time matters. Being focused matters. Being a good teammate matters. Following directions matters. Doing the little things matters. Doing things the right way matters. Respecting your parents, siblings, teachers, classmates, coaches, umpires and opponents matters. How you behave in the classroom matters. How you fuel your body matters. How much sleep you get matters. How you recover matters. How you work in the weight room matters. How you work during warm-ups matters. How you work in practice matters. How you perform in games matters. How you work between games matters. Your attitude matters. It ALL matters.
