Jocko Willink says - Short term thinking says the donut tastes good, (the marshmallow tastes good) eat it. Short term thinking says 1 workout really doesn’t matter, skip it. Short term thinking encourages you to make short term emotional decisions that can hurt you in the long run. Think long term. Take action that improves your long term position and moves you toward your long term goals. You need to win battles in order to win the war. You need to know your goals and why they are important. You need to get out of bed, run and exercise, work out, read and study, practice and do the things that you don’t necessarily want to do. Get up and get off your phone and get out of the addictive comfort zone and out in the world and just get after it. Dave Ramsey says - Almost all long term thinking has short term pain. Almost all short term thinking has long term pain and short term relief. Nothing worth having is easy. I say they both have solid advice all should consider. One secret to long term success is the ability to delay gratification. I will share on our Facebook page and experiment conducted years ago at Stanford University called the marshmallow experiment. Parents - this is great example of the significance of teaching and training your children to learn to sacrifice, be patient, and have the ability and discipline to delay gratification. It can be taught and a skill that could have a profound impact on a child’s ability to deal with adversity and learn the concept of sacrifice and working towards a goal. They learn valuable worthwhile goals take time and work. It isn’t instant like almost everything else in their lives. Good stuff!! The Marshmallow Experiment - Instant Gratification Have a great weekend and remember to carry your own weather, hard work works, learn to delay gratification and 4 days til Monday!! Go Tanks!

All call for 5:00 pm today! We have all been super excited for our fall season and the success our teams have experienced and will experience tomorrow as our CC team is competing at the state level. We have so many students involved in our extracurricular events and activities working hard, committing their time and energy, sacrificing for themselves and others, growing and learning, facing challenges, and hopefully, enjoying being on a team and representing our school district in a positive manner. We also have many many other students fighting the fight every day. Competing to be better. Serving on school groups, leading in the classrooms, super focused on their academics, and preparing themselves for their future. We also have many struggling to stay afloat, to stay positive, experiencing difficulty after difficulty, challenges and battles we can only imagine. They push through to face another day and in some cases with very little hope, support, resources, and encouragement. They lose everyday but show up again and again demonstrating such resilience and tenacity. So proud of our kids. This message is to all of our students and anyone else fighting the fight to get to the next minute, next hour, next day or week or year. It is a message for anyone competing with life. I walked through the gym the other day after school and I saw some of our lady student athletes during a practice focused, intense, and just getting after it. It was a real source of inspiration. These same athletes a week earlier were devastated from a tough tough tourney loss, falling to their knees crying and weeping from defeat. A loss. When you invest your heart, soul, mind, and body for something and you fail, lose, or are defeated, the feeling can be simply overwhelming and for some - too much. Just too much. Some are not equipped to deal with loss. Some quit. Many quit. Some will get up, brush themselves off, and go again. Knowing they will be defeated. Knowing they will experience adversity and heartache all this for the small chance to taste real victory or to see just what they are made of. I can assure you with 100% accuracy life experiences will force you to recall something you learned from a loss, a pain, or a hurt. It will happen and it will happen sooner than later and more often than you think. So be thankful to have the opportunity losing brings to you. Experiencing loss personally and watching our staff, coaches, players, students and parents take losses in games, performances, situations, make mistakes, or fail actually encourages me. There is a part of me that is excited and genuinely thankful for the losses. I will get back to this in a second. As superintendent, I hear mostly negative from people. Comes with the territory. Constantly exposed and experience negativity. Every single day. I also hear negativity at games and events directed towards officials, coaches, players, our players and coaches. Quite often I will read social media posts that are very negative about our teams, individual players, coaches, programs, staff, and our school. My challenge to us all, me included, is to be mindful that our children are watching and learning from us. My daughter shared a quote with me a couple of weeks ago she had heard in church. It has been living in my mind recently, and I hope takes up residence because I do not want to forget it. “Our children cannot remember what they have not received, heard, or learned. We all play a part in the next generation.” Wow. This isn’t me wagging my finger like I know best; rather simply sharing a perspective to consider. Our events have families there with children. Our children. Even more are on social media reading the posts and comments. Taking in every bit of it. Receiving. Hearing. Learning. The little eyes are watching us. Be mindful. Don’t mind the criticism and negativity just be mindful on how it is presented and shared. Back to the losses and being thankful for them. Nobody likes to lose. That statement is not actually true. The great ones and those wanting to be great recognize and value losses. They understand that that is the fight. Each day. Its life. You have to fight through. Losses are the only pathway to winning. You have to lose and lose consistently to ever reach the finish line. You can’t get there any other way. You should want to be defeated and defeated decisively, by successfully greater things. And when you lose and you will lose - you must do it the right way. Everyone takes defeats in life but not everyone takes it the right way. Losing the right way is also a responsibility to all the people - your parents, friends, school, teammates, coaches that believe in you. So lose and lose the right way. You will be stronger, wiser, and as most prepared to fight your next fight. Be thankful for the test to find out exactly what you are made and capable of. Even the worst of losses can be a positive. I had a conversation this week with a parent that shared a story of a patient that had struggled terribly with an illness and was losing hope but was able to recover and is doing well. She shared how the person realized in the toughest most worse situations there can be the most beautiful of blessings. A friend of mine shared with me that a winner is just a loser who tried one more time! Be that loser that keeps trying and see what happens!! Have a great weekend and remember to carry your own weather, hard work works, be thankful for your losses and 3 days til Monday!! Go Tanks!
