Whatever you are, be a good one

Was flipping through a book today and came across a quote from Dr. Ed Penhoet (pictured here) that might have relevance to an assistant coach eyeing a head coaching job or a head coach eyeing a better job:

"Whatever you are, be a good one. Success is always built on doing well the job that's in front of you today. I've found that people who are always worried about the next move in the chess game of their life never quite get at that move. Don't think that way because, if you're always worrying about the next step, it will compromise your ability to do your current job well."
