3 – 2 – 1!!!
In todays busy world we often feel rushed and overloaded and tend to forget to do some of the little things as life rushes by in a blur. This weekend I would like you to reach out to someone and just say thank you. Could be an old coach, friend, family member, colleague, etc. Take the time to say thank you more often to those in your life.
Be grateful for the things you do have. Pause each day to think about the moments big or small in the day that brought you joy. Those who pause each day to reflect on some positive aspect of their lives (their health, friends, family, freedom, education, senses, natural surroundings, and so on) experience heightened well-being and tend to live longer. I could even start a gratitude journal.
The last suggestion is to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post (at the bottom) possible topics, questions, or give me a suggestion on something you would like more information about via the 1-Pitch Warrior Weekly Blog. I would like to stay focused on what coaches and players want to know about as much as possible and make sure that I continue to arm people with the 1-Pitch Warrior Mentality.
I have updated the 1PW System with a great new set up for practice plans. Actually the best I have ever looked at. Very detailed and easy to read for players too. Coach Jon Fitzpatrick was kind enough to share them with me for all the other coaches out there. Thanks Jon! Very grateful for a friend like you! (Modeling suggestions above if you didn’t catch on) Those of you who have purchased the 1PW System will find it under the UPDATES.
I am very excited to have finished another book! This time for kids. This summer I finalized The ABCs of Excellence. It is intended to help kids learn their ABCs but even for older kids who already know them to start to understand the intangibles that create excellence. Would make a great gift for your kids, nieces/nephews, godchildren, or anyone else with children that you know or even adults committed to excellence. You can find that at my website or on Amazon for $11.99. Check it out! Hard cover will be coming soon…I also have been working on a new product that I am sure will become apart of what you do every year in your program on and off the field called Lessons In Leadership. More to come very soon!!!
If you would like to win all three of my books all you have to do is participate in the third suggestion. Email me (email@example.com) or post a suggestion about what you want future posts to be about and you will be entered to win. A winner will be chosen next week.
Even if you don’t win all 3 books at least you are still a winner too. I added a sample practice plan to the bottom of this blog post that you can feel free to grab.
