No snark intended with my question. I’m simply asking in response to something Patrick Garbin wrote:
Speaking of defense, on a side note, I saw Todd Grantham last Thursday in the early evening at Prince Avenue Christian School’s football stadium; his son and my nephew play on the same 5th-6th grade football team. From the stands just prior to the game, I overheard someone mumble, “Grantham should probably be in his office, watching film on the Gamecocks…” Everyone within earshot, including myself, found it humorous.
I’m no longer snickering, but think there might be some truth to the statement. I bet none of Nick Saban’s top assistants were at a pee wee football game within 48 hours of Saturday… and Alabama had an open date this past weekend.
So, I’m genuinely curious – how many of you agree with that sentiment? Did, say, Urban Meyer push things too far with that? Or do two national titles suggest that he had his priorities straight? And those of you who run your own businesses, do you run your work life at the expense of family time to the extent Patrick is suggesting?
Note we’re not talking about using your time wisely and efficiently – just that if you pour enough of your attention into your work, you’ll be more successful. How much better could Saturday night have gone had Grantham stayed in the office all those Thursday evenings?
