A week ago, I heard Randi Zuckerberg talk about her Pick Three book’s concept on a podcast with Cal Fussman, in a wonderful episode about many more important issues. The Pick Three concept was that for each day, you identify three priorities to focus on a little more than other things to be able to do those three things well. I loved the idea, enough that I have decided to incorporate it into my life for at least 2019! However, I did not go buy the book (no offense intended to Randi), because as I researched more about the book and method, I thought I could create my own to suit my life and attitudes towards how to do this. So here is what I came up with for my Pick 3 system, with number to differentiate from Randi’s, in no particular order of presentation:
The most talked about college football player in the NFL draft, Johnny Football (aka Manziel), ends up in Cleveland, of all places!
After slipping to #22 in the draft, he ends up in the most boring of all places in the league. It’s cold. The uniforms are brown. Who’s on the team?
If you believe in opposites attract and are good for each other, then perhaps nobody needs Johnny Football more than Cleveland. But if you believe in similar synergy, then Johnny is the worst fit for Cleveland. Personally, Cleveland was where I least wanted to see Johnny because I don’t think much is there for him to succeed with, from the weather to the team. Johnny will get his highlight reel plays in, sure. However, far fewer than if elsewhere, in my opinion. I think he’ll only shine with a second chance somewhere else, and hopes he does well enough to earn that second chance.
But like everyone else picked in the draft, we’ll only see with time.
Do you believe in signs? Signs in omens?
I certainly do, and I saw one today that has me convinced the Vancouver Canucks will win the Stanley Cup in 2011.
Look at the logos of the two teams the way they will be shown during the finals, with the home advantage team customarily on the right. What do you see?
