Small Ball for Business

“In the sport of baseball, small ball is an informal term for an offensive strategy in which the batting team emphasizes placing runners on base and then advancing them into scoring position for a run in a deliberate, methodical way.” – Wikipedia

Let’s be honest. Power hitters, whether in baseball, politics or business, are sexy. They grab attention and headlines.

Me? I’m a singles hitter. I sometimes steal a base or two, lay down a bunt and draw a walk from time to time. I haven’t hit too many home runs in my business ventures. I’ve struck out plenty. But, I keep walking up to the plate each day attempting to advance my vision and plan and meet my customer’s/client’s needs.

A small baller might not make the news or even the local paper, but she can make a difference, inning by inning, day by day. Deliberately. Methodically.

Small ball does work in business and life, but you need to step up to the plate every single day. Are you? #herebatterbatterbatter
