Thoughts of the week
As a lifelong baseball fan and native Arizonan, this was an exciting week to be in the valley. I have vivid memories of the Arizona Diamondbacks’ last World Series run, and it’s been fun watching the team work their way back into the big time.
At the risk of sounding a bit cheesy, success in sports often provides inspiring analogies for everyday life. The Diamondbacks battled their way from being the underdog wildcard in the playoffs all the way through to the World Series. They were discounted and downplayed but managed to power themselves through the playoffs despite it all.
No matter how the next series of games pans out for the Diamondbacks, the level of tenacity, strategy and adaptability required of professional athletes are skills that we can all learn and apply in our day-to-day journey. And while we’ll never be 100 percent sure where exactly we’ll land, keeping our minds sharp can help us better navigate new and uncertain situations.
To help with this, we’ve got a weekly live AI office hours event to help participants learn all about how to leverage AI. Bring your questions and ideas, we’d love to hear from you.
And so, just as we applaud the skill and adaptability of our sports heroes, let's also gear up to keep our skills honed on the AI playing field. Let's learn, adapt and strategize - just like the pros. See you there!
(And go Diamondbacks!)
