Cranking Your Team's Tractor: No two individuals are the same, but every team member has a hot button. Some need motivation through praise; some through fear and others through challenges. In football, eleven hearts beating as one becomes an unbeatable unit. Leaders often forget that a starter must have a battery to get it going. Leaders must never be afraid to use jumper cables. Even though some people are born on third base and say they hit a triple, most people need motivation.
Snow White Just Kicked Dopey Off Her Team: Slackers drag everyone down. Most people who are fired, should have been fired earlier. Locate the cancers in your organization before they spread. Lead, follow or get out of the way. Sleepy and Dopey need to get better or get gone.
It Is Important To Always Fertilize Your Grits Tree: Find the winners in your organization and help them get to the next level. In athletics, "potential" will get you beat and get you fired. As long as a coach gets on you, he hasn't given up on you. In baseball, if you strike out batters with your fastball 90% of the time, forget about your curve-ball. Work on your fastball.
You Don't Have To Swallow A Football To Be Able To Pass It: Communication is the key to success. Take care of the little things and the big things will fall in place. Organizations fail because they get away from the fundamentals. Ships rust quicker in port than at sea. Inactivity and the lack of basics are common to failure.
Fighting the Buzzards Off Of Road Kill: I received a PHD (Poor, Hungry and Determined)from the University of Life. I grew up with a guy we called Blister: he showed up after the work was done.
The Two Best Words To Advance Your Career...You're Fired! Donald Trump didn't coin this phrase. You should thank employers for making the decision for you because you were too scared to make it. To leap further, sometimes you have to back up a little. The second most fun in athletics is losing; the most fun is winning. Pity those poor souls that know neither.
READY! FIRE! AIM! Successful people have goals that are written down with a plan of action that can be viewed daily. Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you will still be among the stars. Goals should be a written plan of your dreams with deadlines.
