Still more about what we can learn from John Wooden

STILL MORE from Richard Sparks on what we can learn from John Wooden.  This post is about how Wooden measured success:  “Wooden, while enormously successful in competition with other teams, measured success differently. His definition came from his father, who stressed, ‘he should never try to be better than someone else, but that he should never cease to try and become the best he could be.’ This led to his own definition of success: ‘Success is the peace of mind which is a direct result of the self-satisfaction in knowing you have made the effort to become the best of which you are capable.'”  Earlier posts here, here, and here.
