Lakers legend Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and reportedly seven others were killed today in a helicopter crash.  The basketball great truly was larger than life, and he inspired many with his iconic performances, infectious smile, unwavering commitment to perfecting his craft, and impassioned desire to win — aka defeat failure.  I decided I would honor him by dedicating my “Quote of the Week” to him.  This one seemed fitting.

“You are responsible for how people remember you or don’t.  So don’t take it lightly.“ ~ Kobe Bryant
