The weekly recap: March 29 | The numbers game

It’s a numbers game.

How many times have you heard that? And I’m not just talking about Math class.

First, the news.

The Hyland Blog: Numbers? We got numbers

See you in San Antonio!

  • As Keanu Reeves would say, “Whoa.”

We’re sure he’s a huge fan of The Hyland Blog (still waiting for you to return the calls, dude), so we know that’s what Neo himself was thinking when he read: John Hancock, one of the oldest U.S. life insurance companies, will stop underwriting traditional life insurance and instead sell only interactive policies that track fitness and health data through wearable devices and smartphones.

The future is here, especially in the insurance industry. Check out four more fascinating ways the Internet of Things is changing insurance forever.

My fav thing of the week: Irrefutability

  • Michael Jordan is irrefutably the greatest basketball player of all time.

And my favorite motivational quote by him is: “A good shooter never stops shooting.”

It’s a great spin on the old quote: “It’s a numbers game.”

Jordan also said, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. On 26 occasions, I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot … and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

Any way you slice it, the point is to never give up. Ever. … Unless I’m on fire and calling for the ball. Then you better pass it.

That’s it. Have a great weekend everyone!
