Be humble. Always seek to improve.

I thoroughly enjoyed this short Harvard Business Review blog post detailing some of the lessons that can be learned from snowboarding sensation Shaun White. While people are all different, there are many ties that bind us together. More specifically, while we all work and play in a wide variety of domains there are principles that are universally applicable. We all deal collectively with many of the same fundamental problems. It’s just our contexts that differ. While it’s natural to look towards fellow disciples when seeking solutions to the problems we encounter in our work, I’ve found that some of the best inspiration can come from people working in completely different disciplines.

Trying to describe the Jazz Process in 1500 words was a challenge. I couldn’t really get into much detail but I think the article hits the important points.
