Message from Legacy, a book by James Kerr about the most successful professional rugby team of all time, and applying their leadership principles to life & business:

Success, is ‘modest improvement, consistently done’. It is about an unrelenting focus on the big goals – winning and leaving a legacy – but also constant attention to the details of practice and preparation. ‘The best sports people in the world practice more than they play.’ ‘Business people should practice too. They should go home at night and analyze their day’s performance. They don’t and they need to. To be good at something takes practice, and lots of it.’ Excellence is a process of evolution, of cumulative learning, of incremental improvement.


Prayers for the Coughlin family and family members of Terminator fighting Covid
