The 100M Dash – A Course on Success

In 1936 – at the Berlin Olympics – Jesse Owens set the record for the 100m dash with a time of 10.3 seconds.  Today, that time wouldn’t even make the cut.  Below is a link to the evolution of this record.  Let this serve as yet another reminder that the bar continues to be raised, in business, sports, and life.  The 100m dash is a microcosm of life as we know it.

Interesting article below.  Do you think this is really possible?  I tend to disagree potentially, and feel that some of these sky high valuations will be tempered much like real estate prices a few years back.  That said, this is the motivation room so you’ve got to be inspired by the potential for greatness today’s (and tomorrow’s) world affords us all!

LinkedIn Upside…A Case in Disruption

LinkedIn Strategy

To me, one of the most disruptive technologies in the past 10 years is LinkedIn.  I don’t have the specific data, but more and more “members” are improving their profiles and taking the upside of the platform more serious on a daily basis.  Look no further than PeopleLinx, for example, who is growing a successful SaaS business helping organization harness the tool.
