We continue Season 3 of the "Great Quotes for Coaches" podcast with another episode where I will be talking about an impactful quote. This is actually Part 1 of a 2-part episode. Today's quote and next week's quote are quite similar to one another, but their focus is just a bit different, so I thought I would talk about each of them over the next two weeks.
Today's quote comes from English mathematician and biostatistician, Karl Pearson. It is about the important of measuring the things that you want to improve at. While I have done this throughout my career as a teacher and coach, I had not heard the actual quote until the last few years, and then I had never heard the second part of the quote until the last couple of months. It is a great quote for us to focus on as we are trying to become the best we're capable of becoming.
Also, you will notice new intro and outro music in today's show. The song is called "Dance in the Sun" by Krisztian Vass. I think it's a nice, lively, upbeat tune for our show. Thanks to Krisztian for a great song!
