It’s the Little Things

Pursue Your Passion

If there’s one characteristic all winners share, it’s that they care more than anyone else. No detail is too small to sweat or too large to dream.

I believe in the basics: attention to, and perfection of, tiny details that might commonly be overlooked. They may seem trivial, perhaps even laughable to those who don’t understand, but they aren’t. They are fundamental to your progress in basketball, business and life. They are the difference between champions and near champions.
John Wooden
