Remaining Flexible

Wow! What a whirlwind the past few days have been. Within the past week I made a last minute decision to go Chad and help put together the team that will compete in the ConIFA world cup in Sweden this coming June.

Mark Hodson and Margo Baker


Tonight I had the opportunity to sit down and work with Mark Hodson who has been to the camps previously and coached the Darfur United team in the 2012 VIVA World Cup in Iraqi Kurdistan. Tonight we got our game plan together for the upcoming tryout and worked on curriculum for post-tryouts all the while I was soaking up any and all advice he had to offer before I set off on this new adventure.

So until I finally make it to Chad, a quote I will have to live by…. “We are stubborn on vision. We are flexible on details….” ? Jeff Bezos

Have you ever lived by this mantra? Share your own moments of big vision and flexibility below.

Support refugees in the forgotten corners of the world through soccer and preschool.
