Barefoot in Boston now available on

“The residents who live here, according to the parable, began noticing increasing numbers of drowning people caught in the river’s swift current and so went to work inventing ever more elaborate technologies to resuscitate them. So preoccupied were these heroic villagers with rescue and treatment that they never thought to look UPSTREAM to see who was pushing the victims in.”

The Grind

John Wooden



Call it deliberate practice, focused resolve, constant repetition, you may call it whatever you like, but I choose to call it the grind.  The grind is dressed in street clothes, wears a hard hat and packs a lunch box for a heavy days work! The grind is the long road, a path few choose to travel, marred with obstacles, mountains, valleys and shadows of the many spirits that have given up on their journey.  The grind is the best-kept secret to professional success.  It never ceases to amaze me that so many people try to bypass the grind to find instant gratification.  Coach John Wooden once said: “The quality of the effort is where I found-and continue to find-success.”  Success is not pure without sacrifice.  For this reason, I am forever grateful for “The Grind.”
