John Wooden Basketball Quote

John Wooden Picture
"Never mistake activity for achievement."
This is a basketball quote that I share with my players every season. I keep it posted on our bulletin board in the locker room.
It lets the players and coaches know that just because we're moving and being active doesn't mean we're achieving our goals.
We have to move with a purpose. Practice and play with a purpose. When we do that then we're moving towards achieving our goals. Not just being active.
This is my favorite basketball quote by the greatest coach in the history of college basketball.
Motivational quote by John Wooden
Things turn out best for people who make the best of the way things turn out. ~John Wooden
This quote makes me think that if I make a mistake in basketball or in life, and I move on and don't get frustrated better things will happen and i'll get better and learn from the mistake I made.
