There’s so much you can learn when you listen to someone who is great at what they do. Here are some quotes worth hearing from the coach worth listening to:

“When you are organized, it’s a lot easier to be efficient. So being organized is big for me. You look around, my books are organized, my bottles of water are organized, my files are organized… I learned that from my dad, an Air Force guy. In our garage, he had all his tools hung up nice and neat. If we took a hammer out, he made sure we put it back.”

“Nothing is easy in the National Football League, I know it as well as anybody both as a player and a coach. You earn everything you get in this league… I know what the fan base wants. We all want that Lombardi Trophy. That’s the ultimate goal. That’s what is missing here in Philadelphia.”

“…I said a couple of words to the team before we went about our day. Then I closed by saying, ‘We will win this game.’ I had been saying that to the team every day since the postseason began. It wasn’t, ‘We will do everything we can to win this game.’ It was, ‘We will win this game.’ I thought if I said it enough, we would believe it.”

From “Fearless: How an Underdog Becomes a Champion”
“I’m going to be the same coach I’ve always been. That’s not going to change now, or ever. I think you have to be who you are. I’m here to do a job and I think the best way to be successful is to make sure you are prepared and relaxed and enjoying the moment. That’s the big thing. Stay in the moment and be the best you can be.”
