Scrimmage Your Results

It's one thing to predict your downstream results. It's another to test it. I'm a fan of scrimmaging against results to find my strengths and weaknesses as early in the project as possible. I encourage others to do the same. In sports, a scrimmage is when you play another team informally. Playing teams in scrimmages before the season starts, helps reveal strengths and weaknesses before it counts.

The Gift of Adversity
In The Gift of Adversity, best-selling author and psychiatrist Rosenthal tackles the topic of adversity in a very deep and significant way. Through stories and reflection, he shows us that to live authentic and meaningful lives, we need to engage with our own failures and defeats. The key is to find value in our mistakes and misfortunes, and to use adversity as a way to grow stronger and wiser throughout life.
