Some Wisdom from Steve Kerr

STEVE KERR, head coach of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, had a great philosophy during his 15 years playing in the NBA. He wasn’t a superstar, was traded a few times, and his career was anything but secure. His outlook and attitude was smart, however:

“…as he related a few years back, he eventually began writing “FI” on the toes of his hightops. F— it. That way, every time he looked down he’d see a reminder. You can only control so much. Let it fly.”

I admire that, and have strived to have that kind of outlook most of my adult life. I love that little reminder Kerr used. Perhaps for me, an “FI” tattoo might be in order…
