Business Insider explained that Seinfeld was to bring his, “popular web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” to Netflix. The new deal will also include two original stand-up specials for the streaming giant.”
Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon has captured the attention of many over the last couple of weeks. You are likely aware of one, if not several things, that put Rippon into the public eye.
To me, the one thing that truly stands out about Rippon isn’t the thing that garnered most attention…
It’s Not About Medals
You rush from the meeting with a new project assigned,
Less than an hour in charge, yet your three days behind.
On your computer you create a new file folder,
Soon to be filled with interviews of each stakeholder.
One executive thinks the project is the most important ever,
In the United States alone, some 94% of annual car accidents (over 2 million of them) are the result of human error (U.S., DOT). This staggering statistic is a huge catalyst for the self-driving car movement.
I’m cautiously optimistic that self-driving vehicles will save many lives in the future.
December is here and with it comes a flurry of activities.
It’s easy to get swept up in the end-of-the-year frenzy.
Frankly, left to my own devices, I’m likely to ring in the New Year with a twinge of disappointment, if I don’t accomplish a couple of goals.
As I think about whether or not I want to invest the time and energy to get them across the finish line by yearend, I’m haunted by the following quote:
Earlier this year, I wrote an article about Lucy Westlake and her dad (Rodney) climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa.
The post discussed the importance of winning and, more importantly, winning with others as opposed to winning at the expense of others.
“Winning often begets winning, but winning is at its very best when you bring someone or something else with you along the way.”
The June 30, 2014 Sports Illustrated cover featured a photo of Houston Astros’ outfielder, George Springer. The headline, “Your 2017 World Series Champs: An Unprecedented Look at How a Franchise is Going Beyond ‘Moneyball‘ to Build the Next Big Thing…”
This was a bold proclamation by author, Ben Reiter, who called it Baseball’s Great Experiment. At the time his prediction seemed far-fetched if not outright ludicrous. After all, the Astros had just finished three straight seasons as the dwellers at the bottom of the standings.
I recently read that Twitter is expanding its longstanding 140-character limitation to 280. At least for a small group of people selected for the test.
Here’s what co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey said about the decision.
“This is a small change, but a big move for us. 140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit. Proud of how thoughtful the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet. And at the same time maintaining our brevity, speed, and essence!” – Jack Dorsey, CEO Twitter
Several years ago, someone asked me the question, “I see you working hard and growing your business, but are you building something worth building?”
In all honesty, my initial reaction was defensive in nature. My mind quickly conjured up – Of course, I am! However, before the words came out of my mouth, I considered the source of the question. He wasn’t being judgmental about the life I was creating for myself. In fact, he didn’t even want an answer. He merely wanted me to pause and reflect.
