The Scouts agreed that Billy Beane had it all:  Strength, Foot Speed, Hand Eye Coordination. He had the chiseled look of a Baseball Superstar, even in High School.  Definitely headed to the heights of Major League Ball!

One Problem:  He lacked the psychological makeup – like the forgetfulness that lets a player to put aside a bad at bat and succeed the next time up.

A great lesson for any of us who have misjudged a candidate in an interview!

This anecdote is from Michael Lewis’ “Money Ball”. The words are my own.
