a year of Wooden: week 5

Happy Monday, friends! Could you believe the Super Bowl yesterday? What a crazy game!

This year I am doing “a year of Wooden” following the teachings of Coach John Wooden, and in particular his 7-Point Creed.

This week, we’re moving into the second month and the second item in this year of Wooden:

  • February: Make friendship a fine art.

I’ve always loved the phrasing of this line of Coach Wooden’s 7-Point Creed: friendship as something you make, actively, with a creative skill and compassion akin to making art.

For this first week, the challenge is to reach out to at least one friend you haven’t talked to in a while. Call them up on the phone to say hello or schedule a catch-up coffee date or lunch.

I’ll leave you with this quote:

Questions of the day:

  • What did you think of the Super Bowl?
  • Do you have regular phone dates with your friends?

  1. This is a good one!
    I talk to quite a few family members on the phone fairly regularly, especially my aunt, brother, sister, and cousin-in-law(?)/friend 🙂
