Moneyball gets it right

I’ve been meaning to post this great quote from the movie Moneyball (transcribed to the best of my abilities):

I know you’re taking it in the teeth out there, but the first guy through the wall, he always gets bloody. Always. This is threatening not just a way of doing business, but it’s, but in their minds it’s threatening the game.  It really what it’s threatening is their livelihoods, threatening their jobs. It’s threatening the way that they do things. And every time that happens, whether it’s a government or a way of doing business or whatever it is, the people who are holding the reins, have their hands on the switch, they go batshit crazy.

A nearly universal reaction to change…

    Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve visited this blog before but after looking at a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely delighted I came across it and I’ll
    be book-marking it and checking back often!
