New series on the blog, (calling it a series in case I decide to try this again, if so it will look like it was some kind of a plan all along), titled 'Career and Life Advice'.
What makes me qualified to give either career or life advice?
That's why the plan is to share career or life advice from folks who have had pretty demonstrable career success or plain to see amazingly cool lives. Ok, maybe I will try to sneak in some of my own thoughts down the line, we will see.
First up, some career and life advice from San Antonio Spurs head coach, and noted curmudgeon Gregg Popovich, from an article where Pop was discussing the coaching ability of one of his assistants Becky Hammon, who many NBA observers feel will one day become the first female head coach in the NBA.
What is one of Hammon's qualities that contributes to her success according to Pop, (and here comes the advice part):
"She's been perfect," Popovich said. "She knows when to talk and she knows when to shut up. That's as simple as you can put it. A lot of people don't figure that out."
Solid career and life advice in three sentences.
And advice we can all learn from.
Know when it is time to talk and perhaps more importantly, when it is time to shut up.
In trying to follow said advice, I am going to shut up now.
Have a great day.
