Chapter One
Falling Short

Schematic illustration of an alarm clock placed next to a bed.
Coach David tossed and turned as he tried to sleep the night before the first day of basketball season. As a new coach last year, with some of the best players in the state, he was haunted by the fact that the team had failed to live up to their potential.
He thought anxiously about how he could get his players to come together this year. He felt like he had let everyone down, because he had the best athletes and yet they weren't successful as a team. They didn't trust each other. They argued. They were negative on the court, and they didn't communicate or share the ball well.

Schematic illustration of the milk packet and a mug full of milk labeled Coach David.
At 2 a.m. he hopped out of bed and started pacing around the kitchen. He tried drinking warm milk and snuggling with his dog Joey on the couch, but nothing helped to calm his nerves.
“OUCH!” he yelled as he jumped up from the couch. Something had poked him from under the seat cushion, so he reached down to see what it was. He pulled out a stick Joey must have buried there. It was just one of many presents Joey liked to hide around the house. He gave Joey a look of loving disapproval as he rubbed his leg.

Suddenly, he remembered something his mother had told him at the end of last season when she was in town to watch their dreadful playoff game. Despite being predicted to win the championship, they lost in the first round. He was so embarrassed.
One thing she had said really stood out in his memory. She said his team reminded her of an old fable about broken sticks. He had been too disappointed at the time to listen and ask her what she meant, and he was regretting that now. His mom always had great advice, but he wasn't always the best at listening. She had passed away over the summer and he was missing her advice more than ever.

Schematic illustration of the man tying in fables about sticks in the phone that has internet access.
On a hunch, he jumped up and grabbed his phone for a quick internet search. He typed in “fables about sticks.” He started scrolling through the results until he found it: Aesop's fable about the sticks.
This is it, he thought to himself. He looked at Joey, whose couch burying habit had sparked this idea and shouted, “JOEY, YOU'RE THE SMARTEST DOG ALIVE!” Joey, who already knew he was brilliant, yawned and snuggled in closer.

Coach David jumped up, and Joey, who was always up for an adventure no matter what time of day, jumped up and circled him, ready for action.
In the middle of the night, with Joey and his phone flashlight, Coach David crawled around his backyard woods on all fours, looking for sticks to bring to the first day of practice. Joey was happy to assist.

Excitement had taken the place of anxiety and he felt a ray of hope shining in his heart. For the first time, he felt like he had something to guide them that would be much bigger than stats, streaks, or playoffs. He had something meaningful that would give this team a stronger connection and a greater purpose.
