The Brilliance of Age Over Youth

I was at a Bulls game in 1998; my collegiate teammates and I were granted tickets by our university to a Milwaukee Bucks game versus the world champion Chicago Bulls with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen.

The game was in Milwaukee. We were in town playing against the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and we were granted this special treat.

I remember this being my first Bulls game ever and my only time witnessing Michael Jordan live. I wanted him to have one of those 50 point nights. Instead, Michael only finished with like 28 or so point (notice 28 is an “only” for Michael, but a career night for a typical player today).

I wasn’t disappointed but I did want at least to have some of the magic from the man Michael Jordan.

Towards the end of the game he goes baseline on Walter Ray Allen and dunks over Armon Gilliam. I felt like I was at a Michael Jackson concert, the electricity of seeing Michael do one of his signature dunks went through the Milwaukee city.

A few plays later he gets the ball in the post and spins off of Walter Ray Allen and does his signature reverse layup and I went crazy again.

I found this video online and of course had to share it because Walter Ray Allen was a rookie in the NBA and Jordan was in his last year. However, the age and brilliance of Michael was able to sustain the youth and power of Ray Allen.

This is why the world is ran by the elders. The elders have the experience to counter the power, the enthusiasm and the strength of the youth. Is this a knock against the youth?

Of course not!

This is a knock against nobody except for those who wish to work alone. We must work together, the aged and the youth to sustain this world. Now, enjoy the Michael Jordan classic video!

BBallers, who was surprised at Ray Allen holding his own against MJ and the Bulls?

The Straight-A Conspiracy Theory



New Age Leadership


New Age Leadership

New Age Leadership

Not sure if you’ve noticed, but around the turn of the 1960s when radio and television began gaining popularity, people  could then record vicious behavior.

When the media would publish cruel activities, men of cruel power began to amend their ways to appear less gruesome than they were.

Instead of sicking a dog on the poor man, they’d just tell him to come to their office to talk, where they could ignore and string him along. This way he feels they’re trying to help.

At any-rate, I digress… the new age leader and his or her leadership will be lead by the genuine milk of human kindness in heart and by taking suggestions from their followers. Kindness is the new “brute forcefulness” of old.

You may asks: “How does a leader get anything done these days if she’s too kind? The workers will think she’s soft and run all over her kindness. Remember, kindness for weakness quote right...?”

Being kind and firm is not illegal.

Leaders must be firm, but the new age leader, if such person desires to be great, the use of force and cruelty must step aside (or be hidden from the publics eye). People are not following that anymore, they are following people who can lead and can lead with an attitude of grace!
