Do Less But Do It Better

Inside Tony Dungy’s head, the words of his former coach Chuck Noll still echo.
“When you’re not successful, when you’re struggling or having problems, do LESS, don’t do MORE.”

But that’s not the answer. Just doing what we do a little bit better is the answer.”

From his autobiography, Quiet Strength (Tyndale House Publishers, 2007) Dungy shares his game plan for life:

• Have hope for here and hereafter. “When a game ends, win or lose, it’s time to prepare for the next one.”

• It’s the journey that matters. “Learning is more important than the test.”

• Use faith to encourage and lift people up. “It’s about the lives we touch, the legacy we can leave, and the world we can change for the better.”
