Culture is Everything
"Culture drives expectations and beliefs. Expectations and beliefs drive behaviors. Behaviors drive habits. Habits create the future. "
I am excited to make the move to the Bantam AA team, and am looking forward to a great year. I am already planning ways to make this hockey season an enjoyable experience of hockey, and personal development, for this year's players.
Below are the 4 key areas we will be focusing on this year.
1. Mental: "There is no such thing as a disembodied mind. The mind is implanted in the body, and the body is implanted in the mind." Antonio Damasio
2. Physical: "The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it goes around wearing overalls looking like hard work." Annon
3. Technical: Correct bad habits of an uncoachable athlete and s/he will resent you. An athlete with a champion mindset will appreciate your corrections." Coach Witt
4. Life Skills: I'm more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with? I hope I am remembered for being a decent guy." Lionelle Messi
