Space (“You can’t become playful, and therefore creative, if you’re under your usual pressures.”)
Time (“It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”)
Time (“Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate the discomfort of pondering time and indecision.)
Confidence (“Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”)
Humor (“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”)
“I think there’s a very competitive market out there when it comes to assistant coaches,” Saban said. “I think it’s imperative that we keep continuity and that we had the opportunity to be competitive salary-wise with other schools who are trying to hire our coaches. “It doesn’t really matter what my opinion is or anyone else’s opinion. The market is what it is, and if we’re not willing to pay that to the best people that we have, they’re not going to be here.”
