I sincerely and honestly appreciate your feedback. While I'm a decent writer I don't claim to be an expert.
This feedback is invaluable in helping me refine my presentation so that it has maximum impact.
I can't thank you enough and would really appreciate your ongoing critiques.
Here's a little paragraph that jumped into my brain this morning. Feel free to throw some editorial darts at it.
Whether in life or soccer the unscripted offense is the key to success. Brazil (5 times), Argentina (twice), France (once) proved that the most skilful and improvisational soccer teams are the ones who, while the exception, create the rule. Most teams are scripted and predictable. At a low, medium or reasonably high level of play this regimented approach may work. At the highest level talent, creativity and originality are the “margin of greatness”. In the company of the world’s best at the very highest altitudes of challenge and pressure, the anal retentive way of playing the game of soccer and life doesn’t reap the greatest rewards or the most satisfaction and fulfillment.
History is bejeweled with the successes of unscripted leaders. Einstein, Mozart, Michaelangelo, Edison, Churchill, Mother Theresa, Gandhi, Gates, Buffett. They thought and acted originally. They went where others had never traveled and blazed a trail that illuminated, (in Edison’s case literally), the world!
Training children to be an unscripted leader is perhaps the most difficult and elusive skill of teaching.
The Legends training method trains unscripted leaders for life through soccer!
