The Inspiration: At the finals of the 4 x 100 m freestyle relay swim race at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Michael Phelps and his teammates pulled ahead by only 8/100th of a second and won the gold medal, ahead of the French team. The extraordinary skills, determination, calm and focus the American swimmers demonstrated were a powerful inspiration: Why not apply the same approach to business?
