I was listening to a podcast from Pete Carroll (football coach), and his words caught my attention. Instead of the usual lingo (blitz, 2 deep zone, etc), he spoke at a higher level. He made a profound statement:

Know who you are.

I said, okay. But, I thought about the famous saying "I'm okay, you're okay," but quickly added "I'm okay, but you really need some work." So, I was very interested in how Pete was going to make the logical progress from all-accepting to achieving goals. His strategy was simple and worth repeating.

What surprised me, and encouraged me, was that the strategies noted above can be applied to so much we do in life: work, home, relationships, hobbies. The blueprint is above, now is the time to implement those strategies.
