Life: E + R = O

OK, I.m a control freak.

There, I said it.

Along the way, somebody passed along a memorable observations:

“You can’t control everything that happens to you, but you can always control the the way you respond to it.”

Fast forward.

I’m an Ohio State football fan. Last weekend, I was watching the Buckeyes play Michigan State..

The announcers said that Urban Meyer – OSU’s head coach —   preaches the E+R=O principle to his players … even has them wear wristbands.


Say, what?

I ran and googled E+R=O

Answer: Event + Response = Outcome


Hmmmm … sounds familiar.

And, there’s more …


Meyer had a reputation for being a workaholic-on-steroids when he was coaching at the University of Florida.

It strained his family relations and eventually effected his health … so, he walked away from one of the most prestigious coaching gigs in college football.

Then, he accepted the head coaching job at Ohio State.

Guess he didn’t learn his lesson.

Or, did he?

Here’s a 2-minute video worth watching … a lesson for life.

This week has been Meyer’s E + R = O test.

Michigan State snapped the Buckeye’s 23 game winning streak.

So far, Urban Meyer’s “R” has been in line with his philosophy: gear up to play better.

Gotta like it when a person walks the talk, right?
