EDITORIAL be twe e n the line s
diving boldly
INTO THE UNKNOWN
By Wesley Sykes, Managing Editor
Abraham Maslow, an American
psychologist, once stated that " in any given
moment, we have two options: to step
forward into growth or step back into safety. "
In most situations, the former should be
chosen over the latter. Rarely should we rest
on our laurels of past experiences with the
hopes of advancing down the path of success.
Not only is that applicable to everyday life, but also in
the world of athletics. Change is inevitable. And how one
approaches change - particularly in the face of adversity -
can be a defining moment of one's character. Will we cripple
under the fear of the unknown, looking over our shoulders of
past failures? Or will we boldly step forward, learning from
experiences and accept what lies ahead?
We are all currently staring down the face of change as the
world adjusts to ever-changing dynamics that affect us all
on some level or another. The sports world is no different as
athletes, administrators, coaches and many more must now
navigate the uncharted waters of staying prepared for what lies
ahead - even if what lies ahead cannot be seen right now.
Administrators and coaches should stay in contact with their
athletes and ensure a baseline is being maintained. Don't run
away from change - chase it down with the ferocity of LeBron
James looking to pin a block against the backboard on a
fastbreak. And if you find failure tripping you up along the way,
use that experience as a tool in getting over the next obstacle.
It's with the same ideology that Maslow shared that I
introduce myself as the new managing sports editor of Coach &
AD Magazine.
This is undoubtedly a trying time to begin a career change
with so much in flux. But I believe there is only one way to
approach this new adventure - with a full head of steam.
And that's the same way I've approached everything in my
life, dating back to my first freelance assignment from a local
website covering high school sports in Long Island, New York.
I took that same mentality to New Jersey in covering the New
York Jets and brought that professional approach back to my
home state of Massachusetts, where I've served most recently
as the sports editor for two weekly newspapers.
I look forward to getting to know the inner workings of
coaches, athletic administrators, and everyone else involved in
the athletic administration field in the coming weeks, months,
and years. I'm excited to share the work of other tremendously
gifted professionals, who dedicated their time to helping others
and, hopefully, aid in their own growth along the way.
