A friend of mine once described a basketball player as the next Michael Jordan. Another person immediately declared that player was half the player of Jordan. My friend was quick to remind everyone that in many regards ‘half the player of Jordan’ would likely land that player in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Sometimes we meet people that raise the bar to a point where it is difficult to surpass their standards.
