But last Monday was more fun. More fun that proposals, I hear you cry? Well, centre court at Wimbledon takes some beating!
Two things stood out: first, seeing the great Serena Williams en route to the final, in a year when she was battling against a low seeding thanks to a points system that, disgracefully, doesn't recognise that women should be entitled to take maternity leave without being penalised in their career.
And then: the first set of Roger Federer's match againt Adrian Mannarino. Won by Federer. 6-0. In sixteen minutes. I've rarely seen such a demonstration of concentration and power on any sports pitch. As the demolition continued, other fans around me were hoping that the underdog might claim a game. Not me!
See, I recognised in that performance on the tennis court the same desire that characterises great proposal managers. Winning every game; wanting to score highest on every single section. Winning almost every point; wanting relentlessly to score highest on every single question. Recognising that merely 'good enough' isn't 'good enough' if you want to win: you have to tower above the competition.
