[43:45] Best way to reach out to Terry
[10:50] In professional sports, you’ve got to be honest and be careful with how you coach them with mistakes and how to handle criticism. Some guys you can yell at them in front of others, some guys you can't. The decisions you make are best for the group, not individual. Everybody’s got to understand that their role is valued for the organization and the team.
[25:00] On managing outside distractions:
You need to have a hard conversation with them and let them know that this will not last forever. You have to be smart on how to manage your big purchases, how you're gonna live, and the importance of taking care of your body. You should enjoy the fruits of your labor, but there’s a fine line of understanding how to enjoy and also maintain the condition of your body in order to perform the next day.
[33:31] There’s a lot of different levels of greatness. Each organization has to determine what greatness is. Improving yourself from the following year is reaching greatness. There’s a lot of victories along the way, and you might not reach the ultimate goal but if you put in the effort, dedication, and commitment to achieve a portion of those goals then that’s a form of greatness too because there are always sacrifices.
[42:27] When you face adversity, It’s how you respond to it, will you quit? or will you become more determined? Will you seek people who will help you get over adversity? You have to make sure that when you’re faced with the same scenario, you don’t commit the same mistake.
