What’s Important Now

Legendary football coach Lou Holtz coined the acronym W.I.N. and asked his players to think about “What’s Important Now” at least 35 times per day.

What would thinking about W.I.N. 35 times per day require from you and me?

-Be committed to what’s important to us.

-See a need, meet the need.

-If we make 30,000 a day let 35 of them be to refocus into the here and now.

-Be in the moment. It is the most important one.

It won’t always be easy but often times the best things for us are hard. If it were easy everyone would do it.

It may be hard but think of the impact that focusing on W.I.N. will have for us and those we are loving and leading.

I’m cheering for you.
