Win or lose, all he thinks about is how he could have done it better or smoother or faster or some way other than how he did it.
I actually finished reading this book months ago while on vacation in the beautiful Boracay Beach. It took me awhile to write this review though because it was too full of gems and hard for me to figure out which one I should highlight.
There are times we have been content with having that desire, that passion to do something without really working on them. A great leader knows the best way to get people to raise their performance is to put them where they can truly excel, not just where you want them to excel. As expected, I love this statement because it is exactly the kind of philosophy that strengths-based leadership champions.

What emerges is a nuanced biography, unflinching but not ungenerous.The book clocks in at more than 500 pages and is bolstered by extensive research, but it doesn’t feel like a slog. Your comments are subject to our Terms of Service and the privacy policy and terms of service of your social network. Many of the large spreads missed by a point or two and the Big Ten failed in grand fashion. You still have some horrible lines and many teams in the power conferences don’t even have betting lines. I usually avoid books this length, not because I hate reading, but I often read a few books at a time. Not just the best college basketball coach, but I believe he is the best basketball coach at any level.
I had to wait a few hours for them since they weren’t immediately available after the Selection Show.

I spend the first few hours at home watching the first two sets of games (probably still in my pajamas). They had a hellish non-conference schedule and lost every game against a team from a major conference.
So the job gets done, but he’s still always thinking about how he could have done more. It’s kind of oxymoron if you think about it now, reading a book on being relentless while relaxing on one of the world’s finest beaches but, hey, we all need time to sit back and re-focus, right? You get this small window to be a legend, and you have the rest of your life to act like a kid, at any age.
Impossible Is Nothing if you are relentless in your pursuit of excellence in your chosen field. If you do not want to comment with a social network, please consider writing a letter to the editor.
The stories come from his own life.The foundation of personal evangelismCecil starts recognizing that evangelism starts out of your own relationship with Jesus. You don’t know much about the teams because you just hear what amounts to propaganda. I thought this would be a pain to read due to its length, but I found myself really looking forward to my time with the book. The underdog victories in early rounds and the yearly tradition of coming up with a creative excuse to call in sick to work on Thursday and Friday. It was borderline arrogant but this is exactly the kind of confidence that being relentless can bring out in us. Ryan’s top five talent themes are: Relator, Arranger, Learner, Maximizer and Individualization. Davis details Wooden’s playing days as a quick-dribbling guard first at Martinsville High School and then at Purdue University, where he earned All-America honors.After graduation, Wooden married his high school sweetheart, Nell, and took a series of jobs teaching high school English and coaching.
The conference took a hit when may of the top schools joined the American Athletic Conference. You can’t go to the gym, make a gym at home! Tim Grover talks about the kind of relentless mentality that does not settle for excuses. Davis unearths a previously unreported fact: Wooden had a losing record one year at South Bend High, something he later airbrushed from his resume.
It’s a small detail, but a telling one for a man who staked his reputation on honesty.After serving stateside in World War II, Wooden took his first college coaching job, at what is now Indiana State University. His conduct there during the Jim Crow era earns some of the toughest scrutiny in the book.Davis makes a persuasive case that Wooden was not a bigot.
This directly and powerfully impacts the theory and practice of evangelism, for it helps shape our understandings of what we are offering in our communication of the good newsEvangelism begins with God, but God also intends, invites, and desires that God’s people be active participants in the evangelization process.
His teams — both high school and college — were integrated, and on road trips he tried to avoid segregated businesses.
The Scriptures vividly portray that God’s plan for calling God’s fallen creation back to God’s self includes people as integral ministry partners in this work. Players recall once eating a picnic lunch in a park when no restaurant could be found to serve the entire team.But Wooden also left a black player home when the logistics for a road trip proved too complicated.
And likewise, providing only the information without an invitation to trust Christ will leave the listener frustrated and still unsaved. From the calling of Abraham to be a blessing to all the families of the earth, to young Mary giving birth to the Son, to the early disciples leading thousands of people to Christ—the Bible makes it clear that God wants to communicate the possibility of new life in Jesus to people through people. And when the school declined to play in a prestigious — but segregated — postseason tournament, the official explanation sidestepped the issue. Therefore, though evangelism begins with God and is utterly dependent on God, God also envisions a vital role for Christians. The tournament’s ban on black players was dropped the next season only after other schools took a public stand, something Wooden was unwilling to do.In 1948, Wooden moved to UCLA, where he became a legend. Keep Your Priorities StraightThere is a great commandment before there is a great commission.

The highlights here are familiar — the development of talents such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (then known as Lew Alcindor) and Bill Walton, the unprecedented 10 NCAA titles in 12 seasons.But Davis doesn’t overlook situations where Wooden took credit for his assistants’ work or employed tactics he had criticized with other coaches. However, this does not automatically mean that God is the sole agent in the process that leads us to this new life. He notes that Wooden, despite his grandfatherly mien, was emotionally distant with his players. Evangelism is an Event in the Process of DisciplemakingThe people in the relational-strategy camp talk a lot about the cultivation and talk little about the harvest.
God’s sovereignty in evangelism does not cancel out God’s intention for us to be used as God’s agents in evangelism. He addresses head-on the topic of Sam Gilbert, the booster whose generosity fueled rumors of NCAA violations. The writers in the aggressive-strategy camp talk a lot about the harvest, but talk little about the cultivation. Davis seems persuaded by the arguments that the NCAA deliberately chose not to investigate and that if Wooden, a notorious control freak, didn’t know what was going on, he didn’t want to know.The UCLA section of the book contains a lot of play-by-play, and casual basketball fans might lose heart. Skim if you must, but keep reading, because the final section ties up some loose ends nicely.Wooden lived to be nearly 100, and his life reflects, in many ways, a century of American progress.
Born into a family affected by the loss of a child to a disease that vaccines later eradicated, he struggled — sometimes imperfectly — through the civil rights era and the tumult of the 1960s, saw college athletics and his adopted hometown grow exponentially, and then bore the burdens of old age gracefully. We ought to target some sort of middle ground where we see the two united with such terms as cultivation, sowing, and harvesting.
The bio does a masterful job putting his life in context.Davis interviewed Wooden a handful of times and was clearly charmed, which only strengthens the book. There is a proper time for cultivation, a proper time for sowing, and a proper time for harvesting (Location 496).3. He has written a very academic and scholarly treatise delivered in a language we all can understand. His brilliant mind, disciplined academic pursuit and passion for helping others find life in following Christ has resulted in a book every Christian worker should include in their library, not as another dusty tome, but as a pattern for their life and ministry of evangelism.
She graduated from the University of Kansas, the second-winningest program in college basketball history. Notice now that Paul supplies biblical evidence and also empirical evidence for each statement.
Evangelism is more spiritual than methodological.The question in evangelism is not how you can get better equipped or find the newest and latest method of sharing the Good News.
If you have placed your trust in Jesus Christ, because of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life, sharing Jesus Christ is a passion. This brings about the fourth principle of evangelism: Evangelism is more spiritual than it is methodological (Location 1297)5. Being a good witness means passionately pursuing the lost in love.Being a good witness is being salt and light in a tasteless and dark world by living by grace and truth.
Being a witness is more involved in cultivating relationships and sowing seeds in the process of disciple making.  But being a witness is anything but being passive in life and not being involved with people. Being a witness is passionately pursuing the lost in love and being intimately involved with people. You are a witness for Jesus Christ because of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in your life.
You can be either a good witness for Jesus Christ or a poor witness for Jesus Christ, but one way or another you are a witness! How can we harness the power that is found in the body of Christ to corporately reach out to a lost world around us? If I am able to get my people involved in service, and they give themselves away in ministry, evangelism will take care of itself.
