The benefit of vacation is that one has the time to read someone else's book. This is how I found myself in a beach chair, toes in the sand, reading my husband's copy of They Call Me Coach by John Wooden, one of the greatest coaches of all time.
I was into chapter 2, when I came across a list that Wooden's father gave him upon graduating from elementary school. One item on the list was, "Make each day your masterpiece." There was something about this declaration that I loved.
