The Process -Greg Brown -Lipscomb University
The word "Process" is probably overused today in sports. We use it here multiple times daily and in every team/ staff meeting. As much as it is used, I'm not sure all that use it, mean to use the same word for the same meaning. I also don't think our players totally understand the exact context of the word each time. I want our players and staff to know that the "Process" isn't a secret formula to guarantee success. If it was, everyone would be using it. It's not a step-by-step guide to follow, even though there are elements and steps to the "process". It's about getting our players to buy-in to "winning every day"..by doing the things necessary to win daily...The things that don't make highlights or box scores..Shots at game speed on your own, watching film, talking to teammates and coaches, protecting and building culture...It's about controlling the things that we can control and not giving into letting how we feel dictate what we have to do. The "Process" is about Effort, Mental Toughness and Accountability--these things are all a matter of mindset.
