Sorry Mr. Sinatra - I Have Had Quite Few Regrets in 2012 - And That is Good

Wed, 2013-01-02 13:46

No regrets, none at all. Over the last couple of years I have read a number of retiring CEOs asked by various newspapers whether they have had any regrets, all that I read said they had no regrets.  My initial reaction was to roll my eyes; I found this a bit much because in my career, I have and have had many regrets.

What LeBron James can teach us about being a game changer

Wed, 2012-12-12 11:25

In professional basketball, the phrase “game changer” refers to a player who revolutionized how a position was played. Examples include Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Michael Jordan, and, most recently, LeBron James. Russell, Chamberlain, and Jabbar redefined the role of the center, both offensively and defensively. Before them, the paint was an easier place to score baskets. When they made the art of the blocked shot look common, they changed the way the opposing offensive was run. Michael Jordan changed what the shooting guard position looked like.
