It’s only been about a week and a half since Cal had his hip replacement and went to Florida for rehab, but he couldn’t stay away from the BBN any longer. Cal wrote a post for his blog in which he compared the process of recovery to building a team. You have take each one step at a time:
The physical therapist came and met with me yesterday and we went out and walked for a bit. As we were getting done with physical therapy, he turns to me and says, “I know how much you want to skip steps and get this over with, but you just can’t. Your body won’t allow it. Just do a little bit more every day. If you get to the point where you’re trying to do too much, pull back.”
He then looked me dead in the eye and said, “No matter how much you want it to, you’re not going to make this go faster than it’s supposed to go. It’s a process”
Sound familiar? I told him, “Jeez, this sounds like building a basketball team with a bunch of freshmen.”
Leave it to Cal to find a coaching lesson in everything. Don’t walk too fast to that fro-yo line now, Cal. One step at a time.
