#Spaghetti Day January 4

I started the Coach4aday blog in 2014 and have done daily posts on one topic for each year. In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and in 2017 it was “Colleges and Universities”. The one consistent piece of feedback […]

Gotta Serve Somebody-Thanksgiving Message from Bob Dylan

Well it is Thanksgiving Week and just about everyone I know is expressing gratitude for what they have. They also have a willingness to help others that may not be as fortunate as they are. Helping others can be summed up as service. I stumbled across a gospel song written by Bob Dylan called “Gotta […]

Ain’t nobody gonna give a good cahoot-“Respect Yourself”

When you walk across a college campus you see and hear amazing things. Unfortunately you see and hear some disappointing things. One of the troubling sounds I have frequently encountered is the amount of profanity that college students use in conversations as they walk across campus. The F Bomb is not only used but in […]

Dealing with Losing

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about people who are going thru tough times. Tough times can be losing in relationships, losing out on a job search, losing a promotion, losing a spouse/best friend, or losing your self-esteem. My life as a coach and being involved in college athletics for 30 plus years […]

Easy Street-Wet Willie

I experienced a foot injury during a 5 mile run in early February. After two months I started back today with a 2 mile walk/run. I have learned that starting back slow is the only way to resume an exercise routine. I have missed running because thru Spotify I get to listen to lots of […]

Running with Chicago

Tonight on my run I went ahead and listened to Chicago and since I work at a university the lyrics to the song Dialogue caught my attention. Are you optimistic ’bout the way things are going? No, I never ever think of it at all Don’t you ever worry When you see what’s going down? […]

Sing it Gladys

Tonight during my 2.5 mile run I had Gladys Knight cranked up on my Spotify playlist and I just love the lyrics to one of her hits “I have got to use my imagination”. As I ran and listened to the lyrics I realized Gladys was offering up some coaching advice. I didn’t hear it […]

What’s better than sunshine?

If I had to guess what musical group I have listened to the most in my life it probably is the Allman Brothers. So how is it after nearly 40 plus years I discovered a song named  “Soulshine”. Song was written by Warren Haynes and is often performed by Warren and Gregg Allman. Warren now performs […]

A friend’s loss-Let it Rain

  Over the weekend one of my friends who now is an assistant coach in the NBA lost his mother. She was a wonderful lady who happened to work at the university I am employed at. Last night I went to her visitation and the outpouring of love from the community to that family was tremendous. […]
