The two biggest takeaways for me (and there were many I'm missing) is that "every decision is right at the time" and "shower well". The first aphorism is the idea that just because something doesn't work the way you intended, doesn't mean it was the "wrong decision". In a baseball game, a manager might take out a tired starting pitcher, only to have the reliever give up a run and blow the game. While the outcome wasn't positive, does that mean it foolish to decide to remove that pitcher from the game? Would manager do anything differently next time? If the answer is no...then it's probably the right call, even though it doesn't have the right result. I think that's important for everyone to remember (teachers especially) as we make hundreds of small decisions each day. Make the right decision at the time...and then hope for the best.
The second phrase, "Shower Well", is less about the importance of personal hygiene and more about the need to let things go and move on the next day. Celebrate your wins...and then back into the fray. Let go of your losses, and then try again tomorrow. If you're able to shower well, you're able to start the next day fresh no matter what's come before. Mr. Hurdle said "if you have one foot in tomorrow, and one foot in yesterday...well, think about what's above today." Clever joke...but true.
Again, none of this is earth-shattering advice, but it's definitely good advice, and great to hear it from the leaders of the community. While sports aren't important in their own right, they definitely have the power to bring people together.
