A Philosophy in 25 Words of Less Inspired by Pete Carroll Win Forever
Legendary college football coach Pete Carroll started his motivational speech by stressing the importance of having a philosophy and knowing it. Carroll asked some military officers to raise their hands if they had a personal philosophy. About half the attendees raised their hands.
Then he asked how many of those who raised their hands could recite their philosophy in 25 words or less. By then, only a small handful of people still had their hands up.
