Rick Wagoner On Duke, Jobs, And Hard Work

We didn't see this yesterday, but
here's an article on Rick Wagoner
, the CEO of GM, and former Duke basketball
player (and loyal DBR reader, Hi Rick!).  Wagoner played when there was still a freshman team. Hmmm...class
of ' our calculations, that means that he had the rare and amazing
privilege of playing agianst the great David Thompson (also class of '75, NCSU) 
twice.  As impressive as his career has been, we would have almost traded
that for the opportunity to be that close to greatness on the court. Wow.

Anyway, the Chronicle  got to talk to him and he had a lot to say about
jobs, learning, and taking chances.  Great read.
