Mizzou Football's Suggestions for Success

Mizzou Football's Suggestions for Success

As educators, we work to be sure our students are not only high achieving and working toward their goals, but making sure that they are productive members of society when the leave us.  Gary Pinkel, football coach at Missouri, has put together a list of steps for success for his players.  Some of the great ones are:

10. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated.

17. Be decisive even if it means you’ll sometimes be wrong.

My favorite:

21. Don’t do anything that wouldn’t make your mom proud.

It is a letter worth sharing, and I hope you'll share it with your students as well.
