Leading with the Heart: Coach K’s Successful Strategies for Basketball, Business, and Life – By: Mike Krzyzewski, Donald T. Phillips

We’re starting the terrifying but exciting process of trying to find some additional teammates to broaden our efforts with good folks who join us at Balance Better. It only makes sense to check out some of the folks who have created a group and culture that resulted in success for everyone on board and while I have n’er been a Duke fan it is moronic to deny what Coach K built. Good, inspiring read from an inspiring guy.

Some quotes from the book:

“My hunger is not for success, it is for excellence. Because when you attain excellence, success just naturally follows.”

“In order to be a winner, you have to look for ways of getting things done and not for reasons why things can’t be done. People who live with excuses have things that can’t be done hovering around them all the time.”

“If you’re always striving to achieve success that is defined by someone else, you’ll always be frustrated. Define your own success.”

Recommended. Even for non Blue Devils.
