Riddle me this...

That was my nickname when I was in high school. My friend Adrian from Wales gave me the nickname, and I’m grateful that he graduated a year ahead of me so I wouldn’t have to hear about it anymore and be reminded that I ask too many questions.
I think I’ve always been a curious person, and I love asking questions and figuring out why things work. It delights me to no end that my boys love to ask questions too!
Great thing about questions is that it directs focus. And focus determines what you feel. And ultimately how you feel determines what state you’re in. So if you find yourself in a crummy state, and you don’t want that to rub off on your players, ask yourself a better question. Change, “why do I have to deal with these rugrats,” to “how can I successfully help these kids take their game to the next level.” Small distinction, big difference.
