Michael Strahan is playing a whole new ball game, and winning. (769 hits)

[Strahan has] learned the hard way that shortcuts don’t work. “When I played football, I learned a very valuable lesson: Don’t think you’re so good that you’ve just got it, because you’re fooling yourself,” he acknowledges.

"When you’re in the game and there’s this guy that’s beating your butt, you’re thinking, ‘Maybe I should have watched the film and been a little bit more prepared to handle this.’ That’s a life lesson. It taught me to know everything I can about everything I’m going into. To this day, I read everything. Emails—work, business, personal—I read everything. I retain it all and I don’t cut corners.”
But what if the perfectionist makes a mistake? Does he beat himself up? Self-flagellation is not recommended, in our opinion. By that token, he agrees with us. “I’ve definitely made mistakes, but who hasn’t? And I don’t have any regrets because every mistake I’ve made has been a learning experience,” he maintains, noting that there is one bee in his bonnet that, while not a regret or mistake, certainly taught him a lesson.
