I hope you are enjoying these blogs. I have been blessed to share my stories and lessons I have learned along the way. Please share with others if you are liking them.
In today’s blog, I’d like to highlight some stories I shared as a guest on the crown refs podcast some months ago. I am grateful to my friend Paul Diasparra for putting these great clips together and for the work he is doing on crown refs. He is creating content to try to help officials grow in their roles and be better on and off the court. Kudos to Paul and his work: @crownrefs, crownrefs.com.
In these clips, I am not really talking about referring, yet life lessons I learned through my time on the court and through some strong mentors. I loved this time in my life, yet moved on so I could have a greater impact on the lives of others. I hope you enjoy these stories. They are all true and meaningful to me and my life. I hope you find meaning in them too.
I hope you will spend a few minutes watching these clips. If you enjoyed these and found them meaningful, I’d be happy to talk to you about my workshop called: Leadership Lessons from the Hardwood. Click here: Lessons from the Hardwood Flyer. Keep rolling everyone! #SurviveThrive
PS–Take it easy on the refs this season!
Clip #1: Chunk the work. A simple technique you can use to not be overwhelmed with things when they seem too big or too much. Break them down into small chunks.
Clip #2: Family first…Do things to keep your family close. Our jobs, our lives can become very busy, so do the things that keep your family close. I am truly blessed to have such an amazing wife and family and this was a very meaning
Clip #3: Say the important things, show people that you can, take the time to share, talk with others when they’ve had a loss in their life…It will mean a lot for them and to them. This memory is very powerful for me.
Clip #4: The slap heard round the world…well maybe not around the world, but I certainly felt it. Don’t slap people, but how can you support those who are nervous in their jobs, tense, or too wound up. What are some techniques and strategies that you can help others to release from these tight times? This incident certainly woke me up!
