Commentary:

I learned many lessons from high school sports, all of which have aided me in life's challenges. One in particular I refer to often, particularly when coaching. It originates from my high school coaches pushing us in practice to work harder, harder than our opponents. I interpreted this as: if I want the reward of winning then I must put in the effort required to win. Even more concise and appropriate: effort and reward are linked. The truth is, it doesn't really matter what the reward is, whether it is a diploma, summiting a peak, a career or a relationship, the level of effort will determine the level of reward.
