Alert Alert Alert

February 20, 2024

Caffeinated Thought of the Week:

Coach Wooden’s 7th Building Block in his Pyramid of Success is Alertness. Initially, I was a little surprised to find it listed as a building block until I read his definition: “Be observant constantly. Stay open-minded. Be eager to learn and improve.” To be alert, one must remain sharp and committed to personal growth day in and day out. It’s about seeking truth and understanding that there is always room for improvement.
3 Ways to Grow in Alertness:

  • Cultivate a habit of daily reading or listening to audio-books/podcasts.
  • Ask questions and observe those around you.
  • Prioritize basic health practices such as staying hydrated, exercising, and getting adequate sleep.

Quote of the Week:
