"To give anything
less than your best
is to sacrifice the gift."
Steve Prefontaine, 1951-1975
American Distance Runner
Steve Prefontaine was an amazing athlete who's life came to a tragic end. His life ended way too early. The video below will give you a little insight into this young man's life and his drive to use his "gift" and excel in his sport.
In his short life Steve Prefontaine lived by a set of principles that guided his life and governed his actions. Each of us has a set of "guiding" principles we live by; they govern the decisions we make and the manner in which we conduct our business.
Every now and then it's a good idea to review those principles (values) that guide our lives and evaluate the decisions we make. Are we making the best use of our talents (gifts) and how can be best use them to excel in what we do?
