Teflon Memory

Nothing Sticks


In the sport of bowling, the great ones have what I call "Teflon Memory."  Teflon is a substance that nothing sticks too.  In bowling it is important to have the type of memory shot to shot that nothing "sticks" and is very short term.  This includes when things are going well and not so well.  Become a one shot warrior and forget about the past shot(s).


Start developing a TEFLON Mindset.  Don't allow past shots stick to the Present Shot.


Now Go Win the Day!



Inhale the future.



Exhale the past.

Practice Like a Champion

The good ones practice until they get it right, the great ones practice until they can’t get it wrong.

MOOMBA Disease

My Only Obstacle May be Attitude


One of the best motivational speakers on the planet is Ed Agresta.  Ed talks often about the most deadly disease on the planet.


Moomba Disease.


Moomba stands for My Only Obstacle May be Attitude.


The attitude you take is a decision you make, and you must choose wisely.  Attitude is the strongest and weakest muscle in your body.  Like all other muscles, if you don't use it, you lose it.


You must do a little a lot, not a lot a little, and you must do strength training for you attitude. How?  By continuing to read books on the mindset, leadership, successful athletes, etc. and remembering that you have the personal power to choose your attitude each day.


How will others describe your attitude today?

Daily-Confidence Conditioning

You will be where you are one year from now because of the books you read, the people you meet and the experience you have in this coming year.  


You can supercharge your progress by doing daily confidence conditioning.  Confidence conditioning issimply writing out who you are going to become, your new way of thinking and acting.  By simply writing that you currently are that way, you are turbocharging your subconscious mind to put you in that position so that you can experience success.


Examples of confidence conditioning statements are:


I live with discipline in all areas of my life.


I exercise each and every day; it fuels my energy tanks for success.


I have a Do It Now mentality and invest my time into getting things down effectively and efficiently.


When writing your confidence conditioning statments, please write them in the PRESENT MOMENT as if they are happening now.


Please write one confidence conditioning statment below and then start each day with writing all of your statements in your notes app on your iPhone or a journal.

Leaders and Teachers

There have been many great leaders and teachers in college athletics.  Maybe none is greater than legendary UCLA Basketball coach John Wooden.  If you have ever read any of his books, you instantly recognize how special Coach Wooden was in his time as a teacher.


Wooden never called himself a coach; he was always a teacher.  


A leader, particular a teacher or coach, has a most powerful influence on those he or she leads, perhaps more than anyone outside the family.  Therefore, it is the obligation of that leader, teacher, or coach to treat such responsibility as a grave concern.  I consider it a sacred trust:  helping to model character, instill productive principles and values, and provide a positive example to those under my supervision.  I like to think the players I coached, however they came to UCLA, left as men of character.

John Wooden


We are all somebody's coach and teacher.  What will your students learn by your example today?

Fountains and Drains

Are You A Fountain?



The Fountain is always part of the answer.  The Drain is always part of the problem.


The Fountain always has a program.  The Drain always has an excuse.


The Fountain says, “Let me do it for you.”  The Drain says, “That’s not my job.”


The Fountain sees an answer for every problem.  The Drain sees a problem for every answer.


The Fountain sees every lane pattern as an opportunity to strike.  The Drain sees different lane patterns as a challenge that won't end well.


The Fountain says, “it may be difficult, but it’s possible.” The Drain says, “It may be possible, but it’s too difficult.”


If you are going to be a great teammate, you MUST be a Fountain.  Drains only clog things up.


Today, be a Fountain.


Win the Day,
