Winsight Episode 47: March Madness

March Madness Bracket

[audio http://traffic.libsyn.com/winsight/47_Winsight_Episode_47_-_March_Madness.mp3]

Every sports fan loves this time of the year where life stops and 68 teams have the chance to win the NCAA title in a 3 week tournament. Will Kentucky go undefeated? Will Jahlil Okafor go #1 in the Draft? Who is this year’s Cinderella story?

To me, it’s the best event in sports all year and a definite distraction to workplaces for the next couple of weeks. But why the intrigue? Do people love the underdog story? Is it to win your office pool?

In discussing March Madness, these are the highlights that will be covered in this short podcast:

  • The David & Goliath “effect” and why we cheer against the favorite
  • When we see ourself as the “underdog” and want to overcome the “odds”
  • Maybe the reason why we love it so much is the passion we see on player’s faces…
  • In sports the goal is clear, but in life it isn’t that clear

What are you super passionate about? What are you chasing? If you’re not chasing something, what’s holding you back?
