Several years ago, Robert Fulghum wrote a wonderful book called “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” and it started a trend in books and articles, all relating the life lessons we learn from unexpected places, including television shows.
I came across an exceptionally good example of this “genre” the other day and it soars above most I’ve read and I wanted to share it with you. In it, writer Andrew Wyns (Executive Director of Bridges of Greater New York, a transitional housing program for men struggling with addiction and being released from prison) talks about how the sport of rugby helped him become a better father, and a better person.
As a father, it has particular meaning for me, but I also see the direct application of the lessons to other areas in life and even business, since it touches on leadership, team building, and rebounding from mistakes.
Take a few minutes to read this and you’ll see why I think this ranks right up there with Fulghum’s classic!
