When you experience a failure as a leader, don't hide it - talk about it. Your missed opportunity will encourage others to take risks.
As a father, I believe that involving children in sports at a young age is generally, a wise proposition. I believe that healthy competition is... well... healthy; that sporting events foster a spirit of teamwork that far surpasses the events themselves; and that active participation keeps children moving and is good for their self-esteem.
It's a simple fact: no individual can be good at everything. Everyone needs people around them who have complimentary sets of skills.
What separates sports from entrepreneurism, however, is that in business we constantly have to overcome undefined and unpredictable challenges. Athletes train for specific events and conditions, whereas entrepreneurs generally have little idea what they will encounter along the way.
