When the student is ready the teacher will come

The success of Dirk Nowitzki in the Basketball playoffs can be traced back to his second father German trainer Holger Geschwindner.

From a good to know perspective is this quote: "He's ready to learn and he's listening". Not only: When the student is ready the teacher will come, but also leaving the ego at home and taking the advice and work with it.

Another excellent insight:
Their first Christmas together, Geschwindner gave Nowitzki a saxophone.
(He's switched to guitar since losing some teeth early in his NBA career.)
Geschwindner later took Nowitzki to see the opera "The Marriage of Figaro,''
adding that Nowitzki left the theater singing the songs.
"I know from my experience and my job that 30 percent of intelligence, how you move, can come from music,'' Geschwindner said. "It's just to learn the tunes, different mentalities.

Wow music is just fascinating. Also by working on different skills of yours, you become a more well rounded person.
