050710_will_ilsmallFor almost two years I have been asking my first term students to evaluate John Wooden’s definition of success. It usually gets a nice discussion going on the discussion boards. Imagine how pleased I was to find that Coach Wooden gave a talk at TED. Thrilled is probably the word!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Don’t know Coach? Only the greatest coach in College basketball history. Maybe the greatest coach in all of sports. 🙂

Let’s have a great week and I’ll see you on the web!

    This is so awesome. Thanks for sharing the words of wisdom from Coach Wooden. I didn’t know he was also an English teacher. What a keen mind and voice!
    TED is such a wonderful resource for extraordinary resources. I recall watching Jill Bolte Taylor’s talk on her experience having a stroke and the emerging brain chemistry knowledge she learned from it. Gave me an idea for a virtual field trip!
