This is the speech that Michael Bloomberg gave to the University of Michigan’s 2016 graduating class.  This is a great summery of the current economy “Now, we have an economy based on information: Acquire the knowledge, apply the analytics and use your creativity. This is hard to do and hard to learn, and even once you’ve mastered it, you have to start learning all over again, pretty much every day.”


The secret history of Tiger Woods

I really enjoyed watching Tiger Woods play golf in the 2000’s.  This is the story about how he lost this way.  A great reminder of the long term impact of small decisions.  http://espn.go.com/espn/feature/story/_/id/15278522/how-tiger-woods-life-unraveled-years-father-earl-woods-death
