I write this post for a few reasons. First, it’s All-Star Sunday for the NBA and I love basketball. Second, this article highlights one of Bill Simmons greatest ideas (reheated, but still great reading). Finally, it’s a holiday weekend for me so I wanted to take a break from the normal fare.
The Ewing Theory brings up a great idea related to work. There are very few of us who aren’t replaceable. Even those people, who present so much value to their organization, can be missed. Your team won’t look the same without you, but they can and would make it without you.
Value is a relative term. Cherish the value you have and fight to keep it. That comes with attitude, effort, and innovation. Harness that and your ceiling will soar.
