Outcomes are better than activity. If you could have the outcome without having to do the work, that would be the right thing to do. You could reserve your time, energy, and resources for something else, having already achieved the outcome.One law of this Universe is the law of cause and effect. Without a cause, there is no effect. So you know that you cannot obtain the outcome you need (the effect) without the cause (the activity).Why then would you ever expect that you could obtain your goals without the requisite activity?Two Different ApproachesThere are many salespeople who don’t like to track their activity, nor do they like to report it. Mostly, this is because their activity is abysmal. The lack of activity is embarrassing, and so they think of activity management as micromanagement.Many sales managers fear asking adult, professional salespeople about their activity, to both of their detriments. Poor activity leads to poor results. As a sales manager, you fail your people when you don’t hold them accountable for results. And when your salespeople don’t produce results, you fail them when you don’t improve their activity, both the quality and the quantity.When you produce micro results due to a lack of activity, you can expect to have someone ask you about your activity. You may call is micromanagement, but it wouldn’t be necessary if you managed your own activity.The Second ChoiceThere are some salespeople who generate a lot of activity. Almost without fail, they also generate better results than their half-measure-taking peers. These salespeople never mind telling you about their activity. They’re proud of what they do from day-to-day.People who take action without having to be asked are rarely asked to report on their activity. There is no need to police people who act independently; they’re policing themselves. Because they work, they produce results. Because they produce results, no one worries about what they’re doing, as their results speak for themselves.If you can’t, don’t, or won’t manage your own activity, you are always going to have someone manage you. If you manage your own activity, doing more than anyone else would ever expect of you, you will never need to someone to manage you.The level of success you reach is directly proportional to your ability to exercise personal leadership.
Touch Football Australia’s Sport Development Unit has been hosting a staff workshop for operational staff from Sunday 23 September to Tuesday 25 September 2007 in Coffs Harbour.The core of Operational staff were already in Coffs Harbour working at the 2007 X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, and the timing of the workshop fitted well from a logistical and cost effective perspective.The conference has brought together 17 TFA staff from all over the nation to increase knowledge and share their experiences in the delivery of the sport.The Operational Workshop has replaced the National Development Officer Conference.TFA National Participation Manager Marianne Maguire, who was a driving force behind the revamped workshop, is excited about the outcomes the conference will achieve.“We really needed something to help develop the knowledge and share the collective ideas of our operational staff who are decision makers as well as key delivery personnel – people such as Operational Managers, and Sport Development staff who need to continually be challenged and educated to ensure we deliver the sport to its full potential,” Mrs. Maguire said. Topics for presentation have include: Overview of TFA and discussion of roles for staff, Marketing and Branding, Product Knowledge and Professional Development, National Operations Units updates, Trends of the Game, Legal Issues for Affiliates, Finance, Information Technology, and the ASET Program. “Facts Sheet” will be completed by staff members on each of the presented topics to assist with the formation of Operational Manuals for existing and new staff. Touch Football Australia Board of Management Chairman, Mr. Peter Rooney, and Touch Football Australia Chief Executive Officer Colm Maguire were on hand to address the staff and present direction and perspective on the Strategic and Operational endeavours of the sport.“The workshop is another opportunity for us to review, identify, consolidate, and focus on the coordination of our strategic and operational practices. It also provides a fantastic environment for crucial professional development of our staff who are striving to deliver the sport in the best way possible for our affiliated members,” Mr. Maguire said.Guest presenters included Britt Homewood from TFA’s major sponsor Kos Sports X Blades, Michael Broadbent from TFA’s official photographer Michael Broadbent, and various Sport Development Unit staff who gave insights into crucial interest areas that affect the delivery of the sport. The TFA Operational staff, whilst weary from their endeavours in running the X Blades National 18 Years and Under Championships, embraced the Workshop concept enthusiastically.Western Australia’s Operations Manager Angela Doyle believes the workshop offered the chance for understanding and accord across the TFA organisation, and to share ideas with other staff that make valuable contributions to the knowledge well for all.“The key is communication, it is imperative for success, creating links within the organisation, and strengthening us as a unit to deliver like outcomes for the sport,” Ms. Doyle said.The conference will wind up today with all staff heading back to their respective States to build on the knowledge gleaned from the workshop.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham knew its football team was going to have to battle for survival from the start. In 1996, its first year of Division I-A ball, the team’s slogan was unusually defensive: “We’re here to stay,” the omnipresent banners and billboards around Birmingham read. Less than 20 years later, the team is gone.On Tuesday UAB President Ray Watts announced he was shuttering the football team, citing a study from an outside consulting group that determined the program would need to dramatically increase its operating budget in order to remain competitive. “We have considered many options to fill this financial gap, including through philanthropic support; but our informed analysis of current and past support and interest concluded that the gap is simply too wide,” Watts wrote.UAB faced two major problems, one of which was specific to its circumstances, and one of which is staring down all universities that have recently tried their hand at big-time football.The University of Alabama never wanted UAB to be a competitor, making life difficult for UAB even before a team arrived. Even though the two institutions share a board of trustees and a medical school, Alabama has been leery of UAB’s foray into major sports since Gene Bartow left his job as UCLA’s head coach to found UAB’s basketball team in 1978. Citing a range of grievances over recruiting and fan support, Alabama has refused to engage UAB on the court or on the gridiron. The Tide have faced the Blazers only once, in basketball, when they were pitted against each other in the National Invitation Tournament. UAB didn’t help matters by winning 58-56.In 1989, Bartow, UAB’s athletic director, started to put together a football team. Alabama’s athletic department was not happy. Its head coach, Bill Curry, was particularly adamant: “Not only would we not play them, we don’t understand why they are talking about bringing another football team into the University of Alabama system,” he said at the time. “I’m the only [football] coach in the University of Alabama system. We don’t need another football team at one of our other campuses.” In 1991, Bartow sent a letter to the NCAA accusing former and current Alabama coaches — including Bear Bryant — of recruiting violations.The system’s board of trustees has tended to represent Alabama’s interests over UAB’s, perhaps because the large majority of them are alumni of the Capstone. (Trustee Paul Bryant, Jr., for example, is the son of the legendary coach.) They’ve blocked UAB’s attempts to move out of the cavernous and decaying Legion Field and into a new stadium, and they nixed a deal for UAB to hire Jimbo Fisher, who would go on to win a national championship with Florida State.But even if the Blazers hadn’t been undercut by their own trustees, they still would have had a tremendous hill to climb, one that’s getting steeper every year as the gap between the haves and the have-nots of football continues to grow. UAB was in the vanguard of a recent trend of universities starting football programs from scratch with the plan to get to Division I as soon as possible, and reap the PR and financial benefits that come with a major football program. Nine other universities that are in or are about to join the Football Bowl Subdivision have started football programs since UAB did, and they share several commonalities.All of them are based in the South, and all of them felt they had a chance to succeed because of the prestige of the game and the fertile recruiting grounds in the region. But they’ve found it incredibly expensive to field a competitive FBS program. They all have losing records against fellow FBS schools, and they all receive substantial subsidies in order to keep their athletic departments afloat. They’ve had trouble attracting supporters, perhaps because most football fans in the region are already loyal to other teams. And as the Big 5 power conferences start to crank up the financial pressure — both with lavish spending on facilities and upcoming allowances for players — it’s possible that some of these programs could join UAB on the sidelines.Only one of the new teams looks like it’s making the leap to sustainability. South Florida not only has the highest attendance and lowest subsidy percentage of the bunch, it’s also the only school that’s made it out of the C-USA and Sun Belt Conference dregs and into the relative comfort of the American Athletic Conference. (That said, the team has regressed recently, winning only six games in the last two years.)The rest of the teams look a lot like UAB with slightly better attendance. They bring in far less than the average FBS athletic department, and all their athletic departments receive at least 60 percent of their revenues in subsidies — meaning that a combination of student fees, institutional support and state funding are used to cover the majority of their expenses.In his letter to UAB faculty about the shutdown, Watts specifically cited the huge subsidy as a reason the football team had to go, along with an unwillingness to shell out even more cash for upgraded facilities. If that’s actually the case, and cold numbers rather than system-wide infighting cost UAB its team, then there are plenty of other programs facing similar deficits.Watts claims the UAB athletic budget will stay the same even after the football program folds, meaning that more resources can be put toward other sports, including the basketball team, which has recently fallen on hard times after years of winning seasons. Perhaps UAB can look to the success of Virginia Commonwealth University, its former Sun Belt Conference foe, which eschewed the lure of football to focus on basketball. The Rams now play in the hoops-centered Atlantic-10 and regularly make deep runs in the NCAA tournament.Making the Blazers’ basketball team into a powerhouse won’t be a simple task. But it will certainly be easier than the existential struggle its football team just lost.CORRECTION (9:30 a.m., Dec. 8): An earlier version of this article misstated the year that Gene Barlow started UAB’s football program; it was 1989, not 1991.
Senior guard Aaron Craft (4) goes up for a layup. OSU won against North Dakota State University, 79-62, Dec. 14 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorOn the cusp of making Ohio State basketball history, Aaron Craft made it look effortless.The Buckeye senior guard passed Jamar Butler for the most assists in program history early in the second half of OSU’s 79-62 victory against North Dakota State Saturday. The assist was No. 580 for Craft’s career.Craft entered the game needing five assists to tie Butler at 579, then set the new record on his team’s first possession of the second half when he found junior forward LaQuinton Ross wide open under the basket for a score.“It’s a very humbling experience … we’ll have a lot of time to think about it when I get older. By the time I’m a grandfather it’ll probably be about 800 assists in my career,” Craft said after the win. “It’s great to think about right now, but we still have work to be done this year and hopefully we can keep getting better.”Craft finished the game with seven assists to go along with six points. OSU coach Thad Matta said Craft is unlike any other player he’s coached.“It’s hard to put into words, in my opinion, in terms of what Aaron has meant to this program, to this university,” Matta said following the win. “I think anytime that somebody breaks a record, if you’re a true sports fan, you sit down and say, ‘OK, let me think about who he just passed.’ And you think about all the great players that have played at this university. for him to be the leader in two: steals and assists. I think it tells you just the type of basketball player he is. Happy for him.”Four Buckeyes — junior forward Sam Thompson and Ross, senior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. and freshman forward Marc Loving — all finished the win against the Bison in double figures scoring. The Buckeyes shot 52.9 percent from the field in the game, and 50 percent from beyond the arc.OSU (10-0, 0-0) received one first place vote in the most recent USA TODAY Coaches Poll. That one coach was North Dakota State’s Saul Phillips, who said he “didn’t change his mind” after playing the Buckeyes.“They shot the ball extremely well, they executed extremely well … they’re a very good team, they’re very well coached,” Phillips said. “I was up all night a couple weeks ago trying to find a weakness and I realized that they really don’t have a lot.”Phillips singled out Craft in his postgame remarks as well.“Craft is such a unique player in that he can dominate a game and shoot five times and go two-for-five,” Phillips said. “There aren’t many like him out there.”Smith Jr., the only other OSU senior, said playing with Craft makes things “a lot easier.”“You don’t have to worry about when your next shot’s coming or try to force up shots,” Smith Jr. said after the win. “You kind of just wait and sit and you know Aaron’s going to find you and you have your feet ready and your hands ready and you shoot the ball.”Craft said that shooter-passer relationship helped him break the record against the Bison (7-4, 0-0).“Ever since I’ve been here I’ve had the easy job. I’ve played with a lot of great players, with a lot of great shooters that have done the hard part,” Craft said. “I just gotta find those guys and put them in a great opportunity to score and fortunately enough I’ve played with a lot of those guys.”Up next, the Buckeyes are set to take on the Delaware Blue Hens (5-4, 0-0) Wednesday at the Schottenstein Center. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m.
Mount Rushmore National Memorial is an iconic place that attracts more than three million people annually. It features four 60-foot tall granite carvings of the faces of former presidents of the United States — George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt.The historic significance of the four presidents cannot be disputed. Although there have been many important figures in American history, these four have unique legacies that make them worthy of having their faces chiseled into a mountainside.Often people talk about creating a hypothetical “Mount Rushmore” for other disciplines outside of American history. This is especially common in the world of sports.For example, last year LeBron James was asked who he would include on a NBA version of Mount Rushmore. With so many great players and coaches in the league’s history, the task of choosing just four can be tough. But it is fun to find out which four individuals people consider to be the cream of the crop.I will take on that task and narrow down my top four legends to be included on a Mount Rushmore of Ohio State football.OSU is regarded as one of the marquee programs in college football, with eight national championships, seven Heisman Trophy winners and 79 consensus All-Americans. The task to sort through all of the legends from the program’s history and then dwindle them down to select four was at times difficult. But I believe I have found the four most worthy Buckeyes to be carved into the hypothetical granite.I will break down each of my four choices with reasons why I nominate them to the imaginary monument. With a program that has such rich history, there will be deserving individuals who who have been left off, but I only could choose four. Here they are:Woody Hayes- Head Coach, 1951-1978This one wasn’t all that difficult. I would go as far as saying it was a no-brainer to include Woody Hayes. He was the head coach of OSU for 28 seasons, and under his leadership, the program soared into the category of elite. Hayes guided the Buckeyes to five national championships and 13 Big Ten titles. He also coached 58 All-Americans. During his tenure, the Scarlet and Gray went undefeated twice.Hayes’ career at OSU ended in controversy when he punched a Clemson player in the final minutes of the 1978 Gator Bowl, but he was known throughout his time in Columbus to be an incredible leader of the young men he coached. The positive stories surrounding his leadership should — and in my opinion do — overshadow the incident with the Clemson player that got him fired. Hayes is truly a college football coaching legend.He had his trials and tribulations, but a career winning percentage of .761 and five national championships speak for themselves. He helped solidify the Buckeyes as a premier program. No Ohio State football Mount Rushmore would be complete without a carving of Hayes donning his famous large-framed glasses and black hat with a bold scarlet block O outlined in white. To me, his contributions to the program make him 100 percent deserving.Archie Griffin – Running Back, 1972-75Like Hayes, this one was not too agonizing of a selection. Hayes is OSU’s most decorated coach, Griffin its most decorated player. The only two-time Heisman Trophy winner in the award’s 79-year history, Griffin — who was coached by Hayes — first won it as a junior in 1974 when he amassed 1,772 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns. He won his second Heisman in 1975 when he totaled 1,620 yards from scrimmage in 1975 and four touchdowns.Griffin’s Buckeyes made four straight trips to the Rose Bowl, including a victory over Southern California in 1973. He is the only player to lead the Big Ten in rushing for three consecutive seasons. He finished his career with the Scarlet and Gray with a school-record 5,589 rushing yards.In 1986, he was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame. His No. 45 has been retired by Ohio State. In 2014, he was named the All-Century Player of the Rose Bowl Game. Hayes said of Griffin, “He’s a better young man than he is a football player, and he’s the best football player I’ve ever seen.”I believe Griffin is the best player to ever wear scarlet and gray. Buckeye Mount Rushmore would not be complete without him on it.Eddie George, Running Back, 1992-95Before, I said the task of choosing four people to hypothetically carve out of granite was “at times difficult.” It was. This is where it began to get difficult. The first two choices — Hayes and Griffin — were almost obvious. The final two required much more thought.Eddie George got the nod for the third spot on the fictional monument. He suited up for the Buckeyes from 1992 to 1995, having at least three touchdowns in all four of his seasons. George emerged during his junior year when he rushed for 1,442 rushing yards — ninth most in school history — and 12 touchdowns. But his 1995 campaign solidified his spot in Buckeye history and on the OSU Mount Rushmore.George captured the Heisman Trophy for his performance during the 1995 season, and rightfully so. He tallied 2,344 yards from scrimmage — 1,927 of those rushing — and 25 total touchdowns. He rushed for over 100 yards in a school record 12 of the Scarlet and Gray’s 13 games. His 314 rushing yards against Illinois set another school record. Additionally, George had three games over 200 yards rushing in the regular season — another school record. He currently sits behind Griffin in second place for most rushing yards in school history, with 3,768.Finding a season better than George’s 1995 one in Buckeye history would be tough. He dominated competition and carried the team to a 11-2 mark. Those opposed to George being carved into the imaginary granite might point to his 1-3 record in bowl games and a 1-2-1 record against Michigan. Those arguments are fair, but the Buckeyes did finish inside the AP’s Top 20 during each of George’s four seasons, which proves the teams still were successful. He had two exceptional seasons as the featured back, in 1994 and 1995. His senior season was pure dominance. In my opinion, it is arguably the most impressive individual season in OSU history, and because of that, I could not leave George off of the Buckeye Mount Rushmore.Bill Willis, Offensive and Defensive Line, 1942-44The final spot came down to a few people — Urban Meyer, Howard Cassady and Jim Tressel — but in the end, Bill Willis emerged as the most deserving. Willis, who is most likely the least-known individual on the list, started for three seasons for the Buckeyes from 1942 to 1945. He played on both the offensive and defensive lines during his tenure. Willis helped the Scarlet and Gray capture the program’s first national championship in 1942.During his junior and senior seasons in 1943 and 1944, Willis was selected as an All-American. As a senior, he was a part of an undefeated OSU team.Being a lineman — especially from the 1940s — makes statistics more difficult to come by, but Willis’ impact is still easily accessible. When he was voted an All-American, Willis became the first African American from OSU to receive such an honor. He was not the first African American to suit up for the Buckeyes, but he was the first one to become a star.After finishing his career in Columbus, Willis joined the Cleveland Browns in 1946, making him one of the first African Americans to play professional football in the modern era. He went on to have a largely successful professional career.He was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971 and 1977, respectively. His No. 99 was retired by OSU in 2007.Willis was truly a pioneer in the game of football during his time wearing scarlet and gray and beyond. His accomplishments and legacy certainly make him deserving of the final spot of the Ohio State football Mount Rushmore.
