Get it Done Better Than Anyone Else

This morning I went to a fundraising breakfast for the Tidewater Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The head coach of the ODU football team, Coach Bobby Wilder, gave a great talk.

Wish I had taken a notepad or something with me, tried jotting down a few notes on my phone but I was into the message and could not keep up. It was a great motivational talk. Just a little piece of inspiration I took away from Coach Wilder’s talk was a quote about facing adversity and keeping a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude):

Find a way to do it and get it done better than anyone else.

Thanks to Larry and Wes Parker for the invite. Really great morning.
