I hear sports analogies all of the time… They are easy to understand since most people are associated with, like, play or knows something about sports.
I read Moneyballlast year and really liked it. It speaks of how te Oakland A’s built a team with the lowest payroll that was beating the rest of league.
You hear that you won’t hit the baseball if you don’t swing right? Is getting a hit the goal? No. The goal is to score a run because that is how you win the game. Is getting a hit the first step? No, the first step is to get on base. What if you lean in and crowd the plate and get hit with the ball? You get on base! This is the next step in accomplishing your goal. Now just don’t get thrown out and make sure your team mate follows the same strategy. This is the same thing with establishing your targets. Keep the goal in mind.
