“I particularly like basketball analogies for business. In basketball, you play both offense and defense in a nanosecond. And, another great comparison, is that you have to pivot to win.”

–     Richard K. Davis (b. 1958), retired Chairman and CEO, U.S. Bancorp

I had the privilege of meeting and working with Mr. Davis and his vice-chairmen a few years back. Truly a great banker and leader, and, by almost every measure, a difference maker and really solid human being…

Today, an abbreviated Diff, on the theme of basketball, as we pivot to focus on The Middle and his team, seeded #1 in the State Basketball Tournament and playing an arch-rival in round one.

And, it fits the “balance” theme for the week.  Offense and defense, if not simultaneously, certainly instantaneously.  Balance, the ability to change directions, to pivot.  And, in basketball, as in business, those who pivot best, win most often.

Thanks, RKD, and go, Warriors!
