The Best

John Wooden was one of the best basketball coaches of all time. He coached UCLA from 1948 to 1975. During that time he had 10 National Championships, four perfect 30-0 seasons, and an 88 game winning streak. R.I.P Mr. Wooden October 14, 1910 – June 4, 2010

When he graduated from elementary school, his dad gave him a $2 bill and a card with “Seven Things to Do”: JohnWooden carried  the card with him the rest of his life. This is what the card read:

1. Be true to yourself.

2. Help others.

3. Make each day your masterpiece.

4. Drink deeply from good books.

5. Make friendship a fine art.

6. Build a shelter against a rainy day.

7. Pray for guidance, and count and give thanks for your blessings every day.
