Welcome to this edition of the Weekly Circle—where we start the week with a few ideas that make us think.
This week, due to the tragic events that happened yesterday, we're reflecting on NBA legend and cultural icon Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the fellow passengers that were in the helicopter crash. One of our favorite quotes by him:
The most important thing is to try to inspire people so that they can be great in whatever they want to do.
Kobe was an inspiration both on and off the court and inspired billions of people around the world to pursue their dreams and passions. I am one of them. His mentality of a champion (drive), his work ethic of a servant (humility) and his appreciation for life (gratitude) was grounded in a deep, daily meditation practice. He was cool under pressure, reflective of his performance and, most importantly, took the steps to improve. I know he will be teaching us for decades to come. Rest in power and in peace.
This is also another reminder that life is fragile, and shouldn't be taken for granted. I suggest texting a loved one today and telling them how much they mean to you.
I hope you found some inspiration in the above and are ready for the week ahead!
