NRHA Hall of Famer Bob Anthony Is On the Mend

BobAnthonyBob Anthony; Photo by Pat FeuersteinOn Friday evening, April 12,Bob Anthony, 79, Tallahassee, Fla., experienced chest pains; however, he chose not to go to the hospital. By Saturday morning, when the pains had not lessened, Anthony agreed to go to be hospitalized. It was determined that he had indeed suffered a heart attack.

A stent was placed in the blocked artery, which immediately eased the pain and got the blood flowing. Anthony had quadruple bypass surgery in 1998.

Creating a Motivational Climate

One theory in sport psychology suggests that athletes may differ in their predisposed goal orientation. Essentially, the aim of setting goals is to achieve “something,” but how do we define achievement? Whether we succeed or fail depends on our perception of whether we have reached our personal goals or not. This being the case, what I consider to be a success may be a total failure to you, depending on how we each define success and failure.

What’s In Your Toolkit?

What an astute statement by Abraham Maslow. Too often we fall into this trap whether in the show pen or in the board room. Once we find a method or technique that seems to work or feels comfortable, we apply it to every situation. It seems like many of us get to a certain level of expertise, then just stop learning.
