At this time of year you would be hard pressed to find anyone in Canada who hasn’t started to think about winter…
I’ll be shameless and will say, “winter is coming” — and with the approaching season, we also find ourselves thinking about hockey. We watch it, we play it, and some literally live it … it’s a national sport after all.
Hockey is a game I wasn’t particularly good at, haven’t played for years, and as a fan, not interested in anymore — probably because (as I said) I wasn’t very good at it. Interestingly enough though, I found myself at a hockey complex the other day (where I sometimes train) and was drawn to a hockey practice. A group of young players who were down on one knee listening to their coach.
I was inspired.
A coach’s passion offered insight into something much bigger than just hockey —
Have a strong body.
Have a strong mind.
Work very hard.
Someone will always be watching — use any feedback to be better.
Do something — it is better than doing nothing.
DO something… it is better than doing “nothing”
Take that trip.
Take the CFO gig.
Quit that job and travel the world.
Build that house.
Be that lover.
Propose to that girl.
Start that company.
Be who you want to be.
Take that job, although you are scared “shitless”
Do something for fuck sake,
How you interpret this is up to you… all I ask is that you do something.
