Culture of Consistency

I love Alabama Football! Not just because I’m an alum, but also because the program under Nick Saban has been the model for how to create a culture of success. The team-first attitude demonstrated by the leaders and most of the team reflects a recruiting philosophy that focuses, not just on talent but also on temperament.

That “team first” attitude is why Alabama is consistently in the national conversation and has won five of the last nine National Championships. And from the looks of the talent, they’re not done!

Roll Tide!

“First of all, you’ve got to have a vision of ‘What kind of program do I want to have?’ Then you’ve got to have a plan to implement it. Then you’ve got to set the example that you want, develop the principles and values that are important, and get people to buy into it.” ~ Nick Saban

Review

My journals are incubators for the thoughts that become my blog, that turned into my book. So whenever I get to the end of one, I spend some time going through the pages to gather any undernourished nuggets or underdeveloped ideas. Every now and then, I’ll find something so close to completion all I have to do is attach an image.

I also find unfinished thoughts … and wonder where they were going. But I hold on to those, just in case I remember the direction.

“Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.” ~ L.M. Montgomery

Inhale Thoughts, Exhale Forgetfulness…
Inhale Nourish, Exhale Neglect…
Inhale Creation, Exhale Procrastination…
