Do you still enjoy radio, and if so, why?

Do you enjoy radio? It’s a simple question. Since you’re reading this column, the answer most likely is “yes.” Here’s where it gets harder: why? My love of radio began at a very early age, when (as I’ve written many times before) my Aunt Ina gave me a Realtone 10-transistor radio sometime when I was about eight years old. I spent my time listening to what I thought was KHJ, though I was tuned to the wrong station and was actually listening to KGBS. Go figure. Eventually, I was tuning up and down...

Assessing match

Jeff and Alois, When you are playing in a match at what point do you review how it is going.

Important lessons in your career can come from brief interactions with effective leaders. I had one of those interactions with Charlie Bell at Amazon 20 years years ago, and I’ve never forgotten it.
