TA GROUP HOLDINGS | We invest in leaders
As we got close to the court, I was uneasy, even uncomfortable. I didn’t want to embarrass myself and I knew there was no way I could run with the group that was assembled there. I think Headley could sense my nervousness, because he came over and encouraged me: “Come on now, let’s go get these guys.” I told him, “I don’t even know how to play this game! And I don’t want to be the one that is responsible for defeat.” He chuckled and replied, “well that’s not gonna happen, so let’s go!”
To start 2023, I committed to sharing life lessons learned. I let you know the reason for sharing was to honor the people who’ve taught me. As I was thinking about all those amazing people, and the wonderful lessons they shared, I started making a list. Some I’ve written about in previous posts…..the Power of Three, Practice or Quit, and Nothing on the Floor easily came to mind. Today the lesson that stands out for me as I reset and reignite future opportunities, is something my wife taught me in 1997.
Who did it take to make the 1992 U.S. Olympic Basketball team a veritable “Dream Team”?
What did it take to pull wildly different players across the country together to create the U.S. “Miracle on Ice” during the 1980 Winter Olympics?
How did Pearl Jam get individual rockstars to form an ultra-fandom supergroup?
With our roots in the Seattle Area, it’s difficult not to look to supergroups that started in our backyard. When we wanted to build a bigger, stronger team, we took inspiration from bands that changed music, sports teams that spurred legends, and scientific collaborations that changed life as we know it.
