Timeless Principles

John Wooden was arguably the best coach in the history of college basketball. He developed the Pyramid of Success, a wonderful tool to succeed bigg in any endeavor you choose.

So far, we’ve looked at the five blocks that form the foundation of the Pyramid – from left to right – Industriousness, Friendship, Loyalty, Cooperation, and Enthusiasm. Last time, we started the second row by looking at the block on the far left – Self-control.

Now we’ll look at the block on the far right of the second row, sitting above Cooperation and Enthusiasm.

Intentness

This success building block is about goals. Without goals, progress is unlikely if not impossible. We tend to drift instead of moving forward. With our goals fixed firmly in our minds, we have a definiteness of purpose that makes decision-making simpler.

Intentness aids Self-Control. When you know what you want to accomplish, you can resist the ever-present temptations to do something more fun now. Successful people live intentionally – with purpose, on purpose.
