02/14/2005: "Business as Sports..."
So, I've had this thought rolling around in my head for the last few weeks...or maybe just since the SuperBowl®
. I've been thinking about my complete and utter disinterest in sports for the last few years...and I think it's come to this: Business is Sport. At least, that's how I see it. An effective ad campaign is the same to me as a brilliant, hail mary, shot in the dark pass. Financial planning and accounting and HR is all brilliant defensive strategy (and as recent SuperBowl®
s have proven, a good defense can be your best offense). Getting a job right out of college is the draft, and changing jobs two years later is Free Agency.
It figures though, that the part that I like it the offense. I think the part MOST people like is the offense, the Advertising...that is, most people who see things my way.
I think MOST people, in a real majority sense, would rather watch than play, just like in real life...but they gotta make a livin' somehow.
