HARD WORK - Establish a culture of hard work

"There may be people that have more talent than you, but there's no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do."

– Derek Jeter, NY Yankees ('95-'14)


  •  Working hard is a habit, and habits must be earned. DECIDE to work hard daily!
  •  Find a way. Won’t always feel like working hard. Compete, challenge another, grind.
  •  "Practice is what you make of it,” Raul Ibanez (1996-2014)
