“Always take a 12-seed over a 5.”
You’re bound to hear that advice in the next couple of days if you’re filling out a bracket in an NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament pool (for recreational purposes, of course.)
Let’s talk for a moment in time about a different sort of glass slipper.
Is there an underdog company project it was time you championed?
Is there something in a drawer or buried deep down at the end of the bench that should be given the spotlight?
Why not now?
We love underdogs.
We root for Cinderella.
We want the 12-seeds to win… including yours.
What project could you kick off in the next couple days that would get everyone excited? No, it might not go all the way… but wouldn’t everyone in your company enjoy competing to try and help it succeed?
Oh, and PS – The reason I’m not writing about St. Patrick’s Day is because Lynn wrote the perfect post last year.
