The world famous Michael Jordan put his foot in his mouth this weekend. And that’s ok. Everyone makes mistakes. Sadly, his was made during halftime of the most watched regular season game of all college basketball. But you know what they say: No publicity is bad publicity. The Jordan brand could likely release a piece of clothing or footwear this year and still be in good standing. But, if they’re smart, they will have a tee shirt dropping in Carolina blue that let’s you know where the ceiling is (just in case you forgot).
You’re going to mess up in life. You’re human. It happens. Make it less awkward and mess up with confidence. Then laugh it off later when people bring it up (unless it’s a serious mistake. Then don’t laugh).
Make professional development a priority.
