Basketball on the Edge – Life Lessons from my “Old School” Sports Dad by John O’Sullivan

10 life lessons that John O’Sullivan from the Changing the Game Project learned from his Dad.

1. As Confucius says, “Do not worry that no one knows you; seek to be worth knowing”In other words, until you have done everything in your power to influence a situation, quit whining and start doing.

2. Be coachable: Be a great listener, pay attention, and do what the coach tells you, even when you see others doing the opposite and being rewarded for it.

3. If you are going to do something, do it right: Make a commitment and fulfill it. Do more than is asked, not simply the bare minimum required for participation. You can go fishing, go to that party, and go skiing when your commitment is done, but until then you owe it to your teammates to be all in.
