In this podcast, I challenge you to take a moment at the end of the week and reflect on the things that were done, produced, worked on, booked, and paid for in the creative space. We all have those half-finished projects, so your challenge this week is to pull the one you are niggling at most and take 13 minutes to consider what will it take to finish and see it through the door. It is much better to learn said thing when you are in prototype phase rather than ramping into full-scale production and losing out big time.
What is wrong with books like this is not that we cannot learn much from the principles of others parents, it is that invariably, you end up getting problems with the principles. While the Prodigys math lessons are not well integrated in the game, missing opportunities for students to connect, the same cannot be said of its manipulative ed-upselling tactics. Prodigys tactics are designed to make students feel inadequate because their parents did not pay for their math courses.
Math prodigies do not learn math by studying math, as we all do; they learn math in a similar fashion to how we all learn languages. German parents are not just non-supervisory; they reject supervisory authority, on supposedly sound principles, and they send their children to school and then home, having absorbed the odds that a kid might get pulled off along the way, and, reasonably enough, decided it was a safer bet they would not. In Norwich, parents are not pressing, there are not any goals being set, and after a kid scores two goals in a football match, they are sitting back so some other kids can score.
You might ask if Germanys system of shaping children leaves German children shaped as completely as American-born, longtime Berliner Zacher insists. A good artist with a disciple produces the Renaissance, much like a good manager with a willing son supplies the big leagues.
For every wonderkid condemned to early success, we might point to another that started out hot and kept going. Parents can often be the hardest people to impress, but James Kennys said that, during her very first race, the penny finally dropped with James Kennys 2-year-old daughter, Ella.
James Kennys two-year-old daughter Ella is taking steps towards this off course, as well as winning numerous tournaments Ella is receiving top-level coaching from Shane OGrady, the coach of current Irish golfing star Leona Maguire. I know her team and all in Kildare will support her, and hope that these textbook long drives will give her the best possible chance to succeed. Those hours spent on driving ranges, courses and re-arranging garages are now taking James Kenneys two-year-old daughter, Ella, on an American childrens tour.
Then we tried putting in, we had to do a lot of work for it, it was not all smooth sailing, James Kennys laughing. After a burst of laughter from the Kenny family, James Kennys explained the turkeys were not going to be live when he made his presentation.
It was likely a case of something being developed, that his team, Penske Racing, was trying, and that NASCAR decided was too close to the line. NASCAR is still reviewing the actual changes on the Penske cars, and penalties are virtually guaranteed. It would have been one thing for NASCAR to have made clear that its two-car Penske Racing operation had been doing nothing right for weeks, and had issued public warnings for them to clean up their act.
Instead, all we get is allegations from NASCAR Champion Brad Keselowski, who seems to indicate everything innovative or new his Penske Racing team Penske has presented in the past week or so has been rejected by NASCARs investigators. This may well have been the problem behind Keselowskis post-race tirade, in which he suggested NASCAR was not treating Penske teams fairly.
The purpose of an attitude that is noncompetitive cannot be that it makes us better at competing; the purpose of a pressure-free approach cannot be that it generates more effective types of pressure. At the heart of the "Act, Learn, Build, Repeat" model is the fact that you are going to do things that are going to be wrong, by any objective metric, or to do things people will not like. Every action that you take--and remember, taking action is step one of our Act, Learn, Build, Repeat model--is going to change reality.
While within the EU, we are a long way from that result, there are steps that could be taken. The idea is that a proper competitiveness prescription will result in the recovery of growth and prosperity in a country.
Similar policies, prescribed ex-ante on the basis of comparable country-level measures of average competitiveness , may ultimately yield vastly different results ex-post, due to underlying heterogeneity of firmsa productivity performance across countries. A policy could, for instance, have a different effect on an area with middling firms compared to an area with a mix of productively superior and middling firms. Another finding of recent studies on competitiveness using micro data is that a substantial portion of differences in countries levels of productivity can be explained by differences in the allocative effectiveness .
Hendrick Motorsports is adept at playing this system too, and last year, the car that everybody was watching was a Hendrick vehicle that was developing a rear-end. Now Penske Racing, a two-car operation that won its first Cup title after years of trying, is seemingly trying something new in an effort to get a similar edge.
