Coach John Wooden who has given us much throughout his life, not only with college basketball but with leadership, management and life was given a 7-point creed by his father, Joshua Wooden upon graduating grammar school.
Here it is:
Be true to yourself.
Make each day your masterpiece.
Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible.
Make friendship a fine art.
Build a shelter against a rainy day.
Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.
