Setting Goals to Win Championships

As a coach, you have goals, both personal and professional. 

They're different from mine and everyone else's but there are certain habits that you must develop to get from where you are to where you want to be. Ever wondered exactly what they are?

Interviews with Successful Former Athletes
Have you ever wanted clarity on the exact habits that you need to get there? 

Sure, you're working hard but there's that seed of doubt. "Am I doing the right things?"  Yeah, I've been there too.
I have created a cheat sheet that reveals the secret habits of high achieving former athletes. 

I've interviewed dozens of them on my podcast-- Olympians, billionaires, astronauts, Navy Seals, professional athletes-- and identified eight habits that they all have in common.
And I've put them into a free PDF for you so that you can start working on the right things immediately.

XO Wizard Coaching Perspectives

Michael Hoglund and his staff at XO Wizard have done a great job developing an extremely useful playbook application for any program. If you're building a playbook, I would highly recommend jumping into their 14-day trial and give it a run. It is a lot of fun to build within their applet.   


In addition to this tool, he has also regularly contributing insightful content from a variety of sources, so be sure to follow at @XOwizard 

In his latest blog offerings, he meets with several different coaches and explores their perspectives of the game, of program management and athlete training. This should be more 'smart football' to feed your off-season needs

Concussion Movie & Coaching Ethos

There is no bigger issue the sport of football is facing today than the cloud of anxiety associated with long-term affects of head trauma. We have addressed this previously, but not to the extent we will be exposed today. This season we are presented with a social impetus that will move this issue into the minds of a wider audience than just football players and coaches. The movie, Concussion, amplifies the wake started with HBO's "Head Games" (2010) and Frontline's "League of Denial" (2013) with narratives too strong to ignore. The movie is a profitable venue because it is something on everyone's mind; everyone wants to learn more about this issue.
