This question was discussed in one of the podcasts I listen to called Question of the Day. Their answer is 5-10. I think that is very true. I am currently stuck with one of the projects I’m working on. The project is CraigsMenu. Also checkout the blog there if you can. I have been trying to push myself to work on it for the past 2 days but for whatever reason, I simply cannot. I feel like I’m in a video game and this particular magic spell has been used too much and now requires a very long cool down period. I’m going to switch to something else and I hope it can solve the problem. Now it’s time for me to pick another creative project. Already feeling excited!
Summary of the story: Leicester City F.C. is a small soccer club in British Premier League. They only got into the league after 13-14 season. In 14-15 season, they almost got demoted. They were at the bottom after 29 of 38 games. But against all odds, they started their crazy come back, won 7 of the rest 9 games and survived. The unbelievable part is in 15-16 season. Because their performance was not that great in 14-15 season, their odds of winning the champion, according to some sports gambling company, was 5000:1 . They also got a new manager (head coach) that was not considered a good choice by most. They do not have tons of money to buy any super stars. Their main striker Jamie Vardy was still playing non-league soccer in 2012. However, against all odds, including the 5000:1 by the gambling company, they won the champion leading second 10 points. Jamie Vardy also broke the record of score most in consecutive games.
I’m not a huge soccer fan so I only learn this story today. It is really amazing. It’s a classic underdog story. I really feel inspired by it. Some high school teacher even put sign in class room to encourage students saying “If Leicester City can win the champion, you can do anything.”
