Human Computer Post of the Week

If you're not sure what I'm talking about when I say the "human computer", then just view the earlier posts where I wrote about Homer Rice's theory. Theses are things that I'm going to try to keep on my mind this week.

LEADERSHIP: The Law of Addition - Leaders Add Value By Serving Others.
The bottom line in leadership isn't how far we advance ourselves, but in how far we advance others.
  • We add value to others when we..... truly value others.
  • We add value to others when we....make ourselves more valuable to others.
  • We add value to others when we ....know & relate to what others value.
  • We add value to others when we things that God values

FAITH: When God measures a man, He puts the tape around the heart instead of the head.

 "For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart."
                   1 Samuel 16:7

PHILOSOPHY: The Good Life is the Life of Inner Serenity (Epictetus)
  • The surest sign of the higher life is serenity.
  • Coping calmly with inconvenience is the price I pay for my inner serenity.

FAMILY: "The family that you come from isn't as important as the family that you are going to have."
                                                                      Ring Lardner

FOOTBALL: A few random points picked up by hanging around & reading about people who know what they are doing.

  • When breaking down opponent's special teams coverage units, 70-80% of the tackles will be made by 1 or 2 players. Block those guys.
  • When playing a team with fast WRs, align the scout team WRs 3 yds downfield of the line of scrimmage before the snap.
  • Kids can't like football if they don't know what to do
  • It takes 14 repetitions for something to be remembered
  • It takes 11 positive comments to balance out 1 negative.
  • Use Def Line Twists against a draw team on 3rd & long
  • Treat Goal-Line Defense as a special team
