Simple Lessons: The Story of Success

I bought a book for my daughter recently based on legendary coach John Wooden's Pyramid of Success. The book is called Inch and Miles: The Journey to Success. The book is a little text heavy for little kids, but it makes for a decent nighttime read if you can inject some life into it in your storytelling. However, the principles are timeless and serve as an excellent foundation for young kids--IMHO.

Fast forward a few days and I come across this talk from from Richard St. John on TED.

It was a nice reminder during the summer when most people would rather be outside than in dealing with complex, multi-threaded issues and projects. It's a good reminder for everyone and reinforces that the best lessons are often the simplest.
