Brian Patrick Cork is living the Authentic Life

Failure Does Not Always Mean Failure


Point of reference…

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

— Michael Jordan

For context…

I got thrown off of my college Cross Country team and lost my scholarship because of my “bad attitude”. I did not see the point of cellular telephones when they went commercial in 1985. I’ve had my heart broken by pretty girls. I have made and lost fortunes. I spent 61 days in the Boulder County jail. I have been married to the same girl for 16 years, and it gets better every day. My daughters are well adjusted and happy. I sponsor Hispanic youth soccer clubs and make sure kids go to school and have glasses. I get to help some of the top business leaders in the country make better decisions.

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
