| I'm an idiot. Not all of the time, mind you, not even most of the time, but every now and then, I'm an idiot. Like the time my friend and co-founder Brian Halligan asked me to read the book "Moneyball". This was back when we had first launched our startup, HubSpot. "But, I'm not a baseball guy," I said. "It's not about baseball. It's about data." And, I put it on my reading list, and then still failed to read it. I even bought the book, but still failed to read it That was a mistake.
I just got done watching the movie "Moneyball" for the second time. The first time I watched it was last night. It's the only time I've watched the same movie twice in two days. It's not just because it was a great movie (it was), but because I felt I missed so much the first time, that I had to watch it a second. If you haven't seen the movie yet, you should stop reading this article and go watch it. If you get distracted and never make it back to this article, I forgive you.
