Lead and succeed–advice from championship coach Nick Saban

“Promise a starting time, but not a quitting time: It’s not the time that you put in that’s important; it’s how you spend the time. By not setting a quitting time, you are really saying that practice never ends and hard work does not have a conclusion.”

“Success is never final and failure is never fatal. I follow the lead my father set so many years ago. We have a twenty-four-hour rule for the staff and players: Win or lose, move on after a day. We all fail, but how we react to it tells a lot about our success.”
