Giving God “The Heisman” Societies Do Not Survive Secular, Self Serving Morality
|“I know better.”
It’s a simple message backed up by simple behaviors and a better knowledge of life or pursuit. In many contexts you wouldn’t think twice about it. A mom says it to a naïve child mesmerized by red hot fire. Tiger Woods addresses you on how to get lift from a golf ball in a sand trap. B.B. King shows you a trick to get the guitar sound you want. Bill Gates says, “I have new technology idea.” The normal response in the face of greater knowledge and insight is to listen, learn, and apply. Their knowledge transcends your own and only a fool would deign to say, “Thanks but no thanks. I got this one.” In fact, that would be downright rude, smack of narcissism, and showcase how arrogance begets stupidity. This is the most basic message of wisdom: never “back-seat drive” someone who clearly knows more than you and wants to help you.
Nike Re-Signs Tiger Betting Men Have Forgiven, Forgotten
|Despite an expensive and highly publicized divorce due to cheating on his wife, this week Nike re-signed golfer Tiger Woods to another lucrative contract. I wonder if this is a sign that Nike doesn’t care about character and will capitalize on Tiger’s resurgence to the game? Or if it’s a matter of forgiveness, a more powerful attribute. Or both?
Either way, here’s what we can learn from Nike’s move.
