R.I.P. John Wooden

Today John Wooden passed away at the age of 99. Wooden was not only arguably the best basketball coach ever, but he was also extremely well known for what a great guy he was off the court.

When he graduated grammar school his father gave him this “Seven Point Creed”:

  • Be true to yourself.
  • Make each day your masterpiece.
  • Help others.
  • Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.
  • Make friendships a fine art.
  • Build a shelter against a rainy day.
  • Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.

It has always sounded like wonderful advice to me.

Here is a link to a great article on a great man, John Wooden.
