I recently read Pete Carroll’s book Win Forever. Pete writes of his experiences of transforming into an authentic coach: one that knows how he will bring out the best in himself, his team, and his entire organization.
One of his teachings is that people perform at their best when they’re in the zone: free from ego, unworried about results, and immersed in giving their best in all that they do. In other words, they are present and focused on being their best.
Pete instills his philosophy into the culture of the Seattle Seahawks. He attributes his team’s success to how they always compete in everything they do. Most importantly they compete with themselves to be better every moment of every day.
What is your philosophy? What is it that you believe to be true, why, and how does it translate into what you do in your career, within your family, and the organizations you are a part of?
