We've said many times that good management is boring, repetitive, unsexy, unpretty. Most of all, good management is NOT dramatic. Drama is for the movies, and they don't make movies about management, right?

NO. Good career management is ALSO boring, repetitive, unsexy, and unpretty. The fact that we remember the drama is just proof that our memories are emotionally anchored. All those dramatic moments are just like Slam Dunk meeting successes. How do Slam Dunks happen? Long before, during the Pre-Wire.
