Discipline — “It’s not so sexy.” But it makes the difference. It is executing the basics. Easy to say, often difficult to execute.
“We [University of Wisconsin] do things other teams in the middle of the season don’t do: basics,” says Assistant Coach Lamont Paris.
“In a society where no one wants to have any discipline in what they do, they do it like that. You can count on it,” says Marquette University Coaching Assistant Auby. THEY are the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team with a 12-0 winning start to this season. The best for UW since 1915.
Take the lead from this winning team. Focus on the basics. Be disciplined with what you know works.
Sophomore Sam Dekker says, “It has some rough edges on it. But it’s what we do. It’s not so sexy. But winning is fun. If it’s not sexy, that’s fine with us.”
No need to wait for some magical stroke of midnight to make the commitment. Simply do what you know works and make that a priority today.
Discipline pays in attitude and momentum!
