The Difference Between Good Football Coaches and Bad Football Coaches

Bookmark and Share

When they both lose:

  • Good Football Coach: "I take total responsibility."
  • Bad Football Coach: "I blame the refs."

The former is a Florida's Urban Meyer; the latter is a coach at a big name school that hasn't been doing so well.

Why the difference?

Say you get bad grades on a test.

  1. You can blame the teacher.
  2. Or, you can blame yourself.

Blaming your teacher keeps your skills stagnant; blaming yourself on the other hand drives you to improve (e.g., doing more practice problems, asking more questions, getting alternative sources, etc.)

  • The Bad Football Coach thinks he has the necessary skills to win, so he doesn't further his skills despite losing.
  • The Good Football Coach instead takes control of his situation, and figures out how to prevent the same mistakes from happening.

Gradually, he becomes a better coach, as he rids mistakes -- and starts winning a plethora of games.

Blame no one.
