Ted Lasso

Ted Lasso is my favorite show on TV right now. The main character is a Football coach turned Soccer coach in England and a great role model for how to interact with others. The writers have put together a set of characters that display solid values.

Ted Lasso wraps up a game of darts against one of the show's villains played by the amazing Anthony Head, with the quote, "Be Curious, not Judgemental." I went looking for the source and it's from Walt Whitman, but I couldn't find the larger poem. Instead, I found Song of Myself and started this day, a hopeful day that might change my life for the better with a poem.

Here is my quote, for my own story, not Ted Lasso, Soccer Coach, but Tim Burns, Software Engineer.

The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering. I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.

May this be a day for me to be curious and not judgemental
