Do & Don’t

I am reading the score takes care of itself by Bill Walsh. I like the part where he talks about what to do and not do as a leader as a philosophy to stay sane in life or field. 


  1. Don’t ask, why me?
  2. Don’t expect sympathy.
  3. Don’t keep accepting condolences.
  4. Don’t bellyache
  5. Don’t blame others

Failure is part of everyone’s life. We have to learn from it and plan for the next big day. It makes us more humble.


  1. Do expect defeat.
  2. Do allow yourself appropriate rest and grieving time.
  3. You are closer to success when things are worse.
  4. Do begin planning for the next serious encounters.
  5. Do force your brain to stop looking backward or dwelling on past failures.
