Super Bowl-winning coach of the Seattle Seahawks. Super inspiring guy.
Pete wrote this book after an incredibly successful decade coaching the USC Trojans (thankfully he started at USC after I left UCLA—go Bruins!) and right before he started coaching the Seahawks—a team that had won 9 games in the 2 seasons before he showed up.
He basically called his shot—quickly turning the team around and winning a Super Bowl after a few seasons. That’s remarkable.
This book captures the essence of his philosophy: To by Always Competing. It’s an inspiring semi-autobiographical look at his journey in life and in football to craft the philosophy that now guides his success on and off the field.
If you’re into sports, you’ll definitely love it. Even if you’re not, it’s a great read packed with goodness.
I’m excited to share a handful of my favorite Big Ideas and tie them back to other teachers we profile in these Notes so let’s jump straight in!
