Recently, I watched a Cubs game at Wrigley Field with the amazing CEO of Shedwool, Cory Warfield. During one at-bat, a Cubs player hesitated right after he “hit” the ball. Had he taken off running right away, then he would’ve been safe on first. But nope. He’s out. That second hesitation made the difference. And what did Cory say? “You have to take every hit like you are going to make it to base.”
So how does this translate to us? Well, if you want to #movetheball forward, whenever you hit the ball (i.e. take purposeful action to get you closer to your goal), you need to “run” like you are going to make it to base. Swing that bat and GO!!!! Don’t hesitate or wait to see what happens or if someone is going to stop you. Run at full-speed and get on that base! Own your game and move!
