I’m blaming Rudy Kalis. As the years passed in a long career as a sports writer, I always swore I’d never be the oldest guy at the press conference. As long as Rudy was in the house as sports anchor for WSMV-TV, I was safe. Then he got a morning gig at Channel 4.

If you’ve ever seen Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, you know that this quote sums up Ferris’ outlook on life. And he’s not wrong. Slowing down, taking a breath and taking a break will help stave off burnout – and it’s more enjoyable, too. But how does this apply to business? Balance is important, but it’s also essential to use “slowdown” time to take a bird’s eye view of your company so you don’t miss the next big thing.

When Kyle Wagenschutz took over as the bicycle and pedestrian program manager for the city of Memphis in 2010, there was all of one mile of bike lanes to manage.

14. North Texas Could Never Upset the Vols, Right? -

No way Tennessee’s football team can lose Saturday’s homecoming game against North Texas, one of the worst teams in college football.

Expecting to produce a product that’s good, fast and cheap just isn’t realistic.

And a half-dozen or so other lively phrases. But no theme.

79. Fed Rate And Your Retirement -

Ray’s Take After the biggest buildup to a meeting of the Federal Reserve in 10 years, they decided to do – nothing.
