Another Little League season begins here in Los Angeles and my son is joining his fifth team. It would be overstating the fact to say that I enjoy this time of year, but I do support my son in doing something that he enjoys, even if I don’t enjoy all aspects of it. One great benefit I receive, though, is the opportunity to observe people and how they interact in this microcosm of the world.

Looking back over the last several years, I have mined my time at the baseball field for a number of different essays I have published post the last home run of the day. You might question how career discussions can rise out of a kid’s game, but I often find that parts of our lives can illuminate the issues we find in our careers. For me, life and career are inextricably linked.
