If you are not following @LYSNation on Twitter, then you missed the Top 10 LYS tweets from the past week when they were first posted. And if you are on Twitter, you might want to check out the Tweeters who made this week’s list.
- The surest way to prevent yourself from learning a topic is to believe you already know it. (By @JamesClear)
- Mediocre people don’t like high-achievers, and high-achievers don’t like mediocre people. My goal for spring practice? Get the right guys on the bus. Get them in the right seats and get the wrong guys off the bus.” -Nick Saban (By @thecoachtube)
- The definition of success: Success is bringing value to others and finding satisfaction as you do. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- A reminder that, when JFK made the commitment to go to the moon, the top tax rate was 91 percent. When Apollo 11 landed, it was 77 percent. Now we “can’t afford” to pay for anything. (By @CharlesPPierce)
- A number of our top universities make Freshman courses Pass/Fail. Those institutions understand that performance at the end is more relevant than performance at the beginning. (By @LYSNation)
- Obsession: You can’t be obsessed with many things. You can’t be exceptional at everything you do. Obsession limits your life because it rules out so many things. Obsession is interesting. Balance is boring. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- Complaining about negativity is negative. Complainers are often modeling the behaviors they complain about. You model the behavior you complain about when you complain about complaining. You are what you talk about. (By @Leadershipfreak)
- One of the oldest charter management groups in New Orleans is closing its schools because they are a management and academic fiasco, yet fans of privatized education reform continue to say that New Orleans is their movement’s “success” story. (By @Jeffbcdm)
- “…rather than taking up an honest conversation about real reform, the industry (anti-public school privateers) is responding to criticism with behind-the-scenes maneuvering and a public relations campaign based on deception.” (By @pastors4OKkids)
- Recruits: Social media matters. I have now dropped 15 recruits this year because of their twitter posts, likes, or retweets. Explicit images, racist words, and demeaning posts are unacceptable. Your thumbs are killing your opportunities. (By @jwlawson1)
Think. Work. Achieve.
