Tim Kolodziej: Let little ones, not little things, guide you
The “little things.” You’ve heard about them, right? As in, “It’s the little things that matter most.” That’s a lie. I’m not buying it anymore. And I’m asking you to drop the charade, too.
Tim Kolodziej: Maybe a can't-do attitude is what we really need
Excuses. For years, I had just assumed that’s all they were. As a coach, it killed me when a player would tell me, “I can’t.” I often thought he just didn’t feel like playing and was feeding me a line of garbage to leave him alone.
Tim Kolodziej: Feeling some pressure? It might be time to pivot

Tim Kolodziej: Even 25 years later, ‘Bad Boys’ are pretty good

Tim Kolodziej: ‘God’s Not Dead’ and the hope of Easter

Tim Kolodziej: Feeling down lately? There’s an explanation
Are you good at explaining things? I mean, can you give clear directions to the motorist who pulls up to ask for help? Can you teach a group of children to play a game correctly? The art of communication is now a must for any parent, teacher or coach.
Tim Kolodziej: Will your life be different tomorrow? It’s your call
It’s just one sentence. Pretty simple, actually. Mostly small words that anyone can understand. But, dang, those words nearly knocked me over when I heard them the other day.
Tim Kolodziej: Three lessons we can learn from ’Canes’ magical run
Each time they set foot on the court, coach Ralph Blundo and his basketball team continue to teach us about sustained excellence. There are probably dozens of ways we can dissect their success this season, but here are three key lessons I’m learning from this unique squad.
Tim Kolodziej: Maybe it’s time to start saying yes to “no”
So, what’s the secret to overcoming rejection? What’s the secret to hearing “No” and not stopping? It’s so simple it’s scary.
