I am sure many leaders can relate to Mack Brown's past quote from Darryl Royal on how to get thru a tough period. He said Darryl once told him when he asked Him what it takes to recover from a losing skid, he replied "when your tired enough of losing and good enough to fix it". That simple statement likely pertains to a lot of professions who experience problematic periods. More often than not, we seek answers that justify our convictions confirming what we believe to be true rather than accepting we have failed at the current course and that we are simply tired of losing and willing to understand how to fix things.
