Coach John Wooden was a great man and a great coach.
From 1964 to 1975, his college basketball teams won 10 national championships with four of those being undefeated seasons. It’s an unprecedented level of success before or after.
But he didn’t view himself as just a coach. One of his goals was to prepare his players for life, not just athletics, and many of his players remember him the best for this. He was also known for his salient, wisdom-imparting quotes which were referred to as “Woodenisms.”
One such quote relates very well to the social-media activity of today. No, he didn’t speak it about social media, but it’s still very fitting.
