#ELBlog #175: Hitting Singles
I love meeting people who not only are incredibly self-driven yet also inspire others. I recently had Dr. Larry Dake Binghamton, NY) on my podcast and I asked him how he keeps rolling? How does he continue to move forward? He is a busy leader: a father, husband, Assistant Sup & leadership professor. I asked him how he gets it all done?
He shared the concept of hitting singles. He doesn’t try to hit the big home run, the grand slam, or swing for the fences all the time, but make the little hits count. Each time he interacts with others, programs, and makes decisions he does what is necessary to get them right. Getting the plays right, getting his interactions with others RIGHT!
If we are always swinging for the fences there will be a lot of strikeouts, but if we continue to stay focused and get the bat on the ball, we will continue to hit those singles. We will continue to get things right with those we work with, those in our family, and those closest to us. Hitting singles keeps you on base and keeps you in the game. It keeps the game moving forward. It also gets you used to hitting singles and trains your mind to make smart decisions in small increments. It’s like the concept from my friend Dr. Rob Gilbert, doing a little bit a lot of the time. If you keep making good decisions and keep hitting singles good things will happen.
