Success On the Back of Your Hand

Russell Wilson, the former star at NC State and Wisconsin is now the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.

On Sunday he led the Seahawks to a victory over the Carolina Panthers.

During the game, and especially during the rally at the end that led them victory, he kept looking at his wrist. Before every game Wilson writes a word that is the focus of the day for him.

The word on Sunday was Poise.

“Today was poise,” said Wilson. “No matter what’s going on in the game, bring that to the table, bring that to our offense.”

What if we did that in our work/personal lives? We would have a word-of-the-day or thought-of-the-day? Lots of coaches do it to keep players focused.

The word might be anything: poise, focus, dream, innovate, time, share, help, organize, communicate.

What would be your word for today?

  1. A little tenacity never hurts. As Jimmy V urged us in his last speech, 'never, ever give up'.
