Well, Izzo wins the national championship. So what happens, at like 10 o’clock at night right he’s on the shoulders of his players cutting down a net, pumped that they won the national championship they did it right. And then you know at 10:30 or 11:00 he’s back doing a postgame interview with the media breaking it down right and then maybe having a couple cokes with his coaches celebrating privately winning the national championship.
And then as Tom would describe it at 8:30 in the next morning he was on the phone with a snot-nosed 18-year old kid begging him — begging him to come play basketball for Michigan State. The best of the best executes with urgency consistently. That creates a platform for them to do it over and over and over again.
So I believe that if we wake up every day and want to maximize our potential, want to unleash everything that we have inside of ourselves, we have to first believe in what we do and why we do it. We have to discover our own gaps and the gaps in the world in which we want to serve.
We’ve got to get really clear on why we do what we do. And then at the core we’ve got to have the discipline to behave the way in which we’ve gotten clear that we need to behave to unleash our potential to maximize our platform, and then we can what — we can execute at the highest level.
Thank you so much.
