LombardiLombardi Lives?  His Legacy Does

I’ve written about legendary Green Bay Packers’ coach Vince Lombardi  in the past.  He coached the Packers to seven championships back in the ‘60s – an accomplishment so profound the NFL named its Super Bowl trophy after him.

So, wasn’t I surprised to see Lombardi at a recent NFL game.   I know he passed away in 1970 – but there he was, live and in person. 

With the football season now winding down, I thought I’d share some of Lombardi’s most famous quotes which apply to business, sports and life in-general:

Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

“The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.”

People who work together will win , whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.”

“Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.”

“Winners never quit and quitters never win.”

Winning is not a sometime thing, it is an all the time thing . You don’t do things right once in a while…you do them right all the time.”

The objective is to win : fairly, squarely, decently, win by the rules, but still win.”

“Morally, the life of the organization must be of exemplary nature. This is one phase where the organization must not have criticism.”

These are just a small sampling.  And they get me fired up!
