If you think about success and failure as two separate things...you can often get caught up taking too much time making decisions as you navigate through life. It can sometimes paralyze you and create an environment where you are slow to react. Use this quote to think about the concept that you are on a road to success and that there will always be bad luck, setbacks and adversity along the way. Life never goes the way you have envisioned or planned...you must grasp the idea that you must be better than others at overcoming obstacles if you are going to make it down the road to your successes. Stay positive during setbacks and you will find that you were on the right road all along.
Success is on the same road as failure; success is just a little further down the road.

Can virtual reality be used to help those that are close to death or those confined to a bed?

Great players want to be driven, to be pushed to the edge. They don’t want to be cheated. Ordinary players want it to be easy. – Pat Riley
So true. I see it all the time in my football players. Gilpin Football is a proving ground for many of the coaches quotes that I read. This can also be seen in the classroom and in the workforce.

Multitasking is problematic. It's a real thing, and study after study are showing that not only does multitasking slow your performance...it can harm your brain over time. I noticed that most of my older friends and colleagues remember when personal computers first proliferated and we all thought that multitasking was great. We seemed so much more productive with our new tool at hand....you took pride in announcing how good you were at performing multiple tasks at the same time. It was something that we all wanted to be good at.
The younger generation has a different problem...they don't know that they are distracted by multitasking. They have grown up using their eyes to move from screen to screen...back and forth...in their minds...distractions caused by their phones are not distracting at all, they're just a part of life. Go look at a group of high school or college students for a short time...the phones are moving around the group...each distracting the other with add…
