I play basketball, and my philosophy is that there is one thing I can work on by myself in the limited time I give to the sport to improve my game - shooting. I see no good reason why I should not make every one of my shots. Naturally, I will not achieve this. If it were possible, maybe I could be the first former database administrator to get the call on NBA draft day. However, it is a worthy goal, and if I take the approach that every shot needs to go in, more will go in than otherwise! At least, that’s my philosophy.

Likewise, in our professions, I believe any improvement in a particular thing will advance the cause of information management within corporations today. If there is one item that epitomizes this possibility, it is leadership. A tremendous amount of leadership exists within the ranks of information management. Let me state that now. This is definitely true with the various clients that I have under my advisory at this time. However, all would agree that more leadership would help.
