To LINgit to Quit!

I hate to be late to a party, but I’ll admit I kept waiting on this one because I kept thinking it might flame out.

Count me in on the party…but only because I’ve spent the last week learning more about Jeremy Lin the fighter than Jeremy Lin the man-of-the-moment New York Knick Rock Star. Lin’s face is everywhere. The Knicks point guard has taken the world by storm. He has led the Knicks to a 7-2 record since he became a starter.

What We Can Learn From Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady On Success

I’m fascinated by what drives successful people…really successful people.

Tom Brady is going to his fifth Super Bowl this week seeking a record tying fourth Super Bowl win. How did he get to such status? In a recent Sports Illustrated article, “Tom Brady As you Forgot Him” writer Michael Rosenberg talked about how Brady was told by then University of Michigan head coach, Lloyd Carr, that despite the fact he had waited three years and earned the opportunity to be the team’s starter, he would play the first quarter of games and freshman top prospect Drew Henson would play the second quarter and the in-game competition between them would allow coaches to decide at halftime who would play the rest of the game.
