Rick Pitino is famous as one of the most dynamic and
successful basketball coaches of our time, leading the University of Louisville
Cardinals to the NCAA basketball championship in 2013, and is renowned for
writing the #1 New York Times
bestselling success and leadership book, Success
Is a Choice.
In his new book, The
One-Day Contract, Pitino details his key to success, on the court and in
life: to focus on making the most of each day, by creating a contract with
yourself. Coach Pitino was able to turn Louisville into NCAA champions by
applying this idea to everything he and the team did—every practice, every
recruiting visit, every game preparation, every scouting report, every
instruction that he gave players and coaches, and everything he did himself.
Each day became just as important as reaching the national championship, and
so, by honoring the one-day contract, he and Louisville moved through adversity
toward their goal.
In this inspiring and practical guide, Coach Rick Pitino
illustrates how to set your own one-day contract, and follow through to honor
it for each day, each goal, and each interaction with another person. Pitino
shows how to:
• Establish focus as a discipline in everything you do:
planning, strategy, priorities, and career advancement
• Discover the true key to success: not ambition, not wealth,
not power, but humility
• Use technology wisely—but don’t let it replace personal
connection with the people you work and live with
• Own up to your problems and they will become part of your
past; ignore your problems and they become part of your future
• Make small changes and add value to every minute of your
The One-Day Contract
