Malena and Maverick



34 years ago my parents came home with my twin sisters. I hid under the table and told them to take them back. Luckily they didn't pay any attention to a 3 year old as they have been one of my greatest gifts. Today Manuel and I have been fortunate to welcome twins Malena Kathleen and Maverick Agustin into this world. There may be times ahead when we may want to hide under the table but if we have half of the love and support we have already been shown by all our family and friends we know we will survive!!!

Bienvenidos Maverick y Malena. Nacidos el 6 de agosto en Zürich. Si alguien quiere cuidar a dos bebes durante los fines de semana por favor responder esté mensaje. Gracias

Margo and Manuel

Review: Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't

Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't Good to Great: Why Some Companies Make the Leap... and Others Don't by James C. Collins
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting book explaining how a group of companies made it from Good to Great.
The author together with a group of researchers analyzes them and finds the common key princicples about them which are:
-1. Level 5 leadership
- 2. First who…then what (Get the right people)
- 3. Confront the brutal facts (yet never lose faith)
- 4. The Hedgehog concept (Great companies are very focused, they just do ONE thing really well)
- 5. A culture of discipline
- 6. Technology accelerator (They use technology as a vehicle)

Consistency to all these principles eventually leads good companies becoming a great company.
