TeenWolf Wisdom: 3 Rules to live by…

teen wolf coach


A couple times each month I watch a classic film with my 7-year-old son.

This past week we watched TeenWolf starring Michael J. Fox.


Aside from a colossal misunderstanding of the rules governing basketball play, this may be the finest movie of all time.

What a wonderful contribution to the history of filmmaking!


There’s an epic scene between Coach Bobby Finstock and the teenaged werewolf, Scott Howard:


“Let me give you a little advice – there’s 3 rules that I live by:

Never get less than 12 hours sleep…

Never play cards with a guy who’s got the same first name as a city…

And never go near a lady who’s got a tattoo of a dagger on her body…


Now, you stick with that… everything else is cream cheese.”




Absolutely brilliant.

And oh-so true.


Coach Finstock got me thinking…

What 3 rules could I could pass on to my son – or an underdeveloped werewolf with an unconvincing jump shot – in 38 words or less?


In honor of the great Beavers Coach, here are my 3 Red Angle Rules to Live by:
1. Never let a day go by without learning something new.

2. Never let language barriers become management & leadership barriers.

3. And never trust a Port-o-potty on uneven ground.



Now it’s your turn…

What are your 3 rules to live by (in 38 words or less) ?
