Stop me if you've heard this one before...

By Brian Kopack

Recently, I attended a fundraiser at my high school honoring our former basketball coach.  Coach R was 100% teacher.  It seemed like he was always talking.  He told a lot of jokes (most bad, but expertly delivered), so we had a hard time knowing when to take him seriously.  Here’s a Coach R classic I heard hundreds of times:

Coach R: "Kopack, (insert random question)?"

Me: Most likely a brilliant answer.

Coach R: "Do you want to change your mind?"

Me: "No."

Coach R: "So you’re happy with the one you have?" (Hear rim-shot in the background)

He loved that joke.  I hated it, every time.

The joke is poor, the message isn’t – you can be decisive if you are confident.

If you’re confident, you can concentrate on doing, excelling.  When you understand the need for change and you commit to that change, you can concentrate on the doing, the improving.

Admitting an issue exists is the first step toward improvement.  Indecision masks insecurity.

If an IOS consultant were to ask you, “Are you great at managing the power of your information?”  Could you honestly say yes?

If not, we should talk.
