"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

That's Kelly, Richard, Frankie, and Ramalito (ICU staff at Temecula Valley Hospital in California). They're also coaches for a competitive youth soccer club called Legends FC. They've embraced Cross The Line on the field* and at work.
Thanks to everyone out there on the front lines of this!

If we missed you with Jerry Seinfeld's focus reminder (and mine), it's about 1 minute to read (add 30 seconds if you watch the Ferris Bueller clip).
*It was a lazy soccer practice with my older son's team years ago that sparked the writing of Cross The Line. I was the coach.
On the way home from practice, I was sharing the need for better commitment by the team and the initial words landed. "Because with everything there's a line, Sam (we share a name). On one side, there's good things. The other side is mediocrity. It's your choice whether you want to Cross The Line and commit to something better."
When we got home, I started thinking it through on paper and it eventually became something that helped not just us, but a lot of other people too.
