Play Ball? Not just yet…then again, you should be doing it every day.
We are less than five days away from the start of the Major League Baseball season, but this not a baseball blog. I will reserve deeper thought and meaning on the game for next Monday, Opening Day.
But as we grasp for any thoughts to warm our bodies ’round these parts… I found a quote which will only take you as long to read as a tune-up during a spring training drill. It’s about baseball and life and it comes from Tom Egelhoff, of KMMS 1450 AM out of Montana. It’s about baseball and life:
“…in baseball, like life, you score when the opposing team controls the ball. In life, we find ourselves trying to achieve greatness while others control the ball at our workplace, school, or military service. Sometimes it does seem like the other team truly wants you to fail. And, sometimes at work, or in society, it may seem everyone is out to get you. But, in baseball, like life, those who succeed in either, find a way to overcome the obstacles placed before them. Hitting the baseball or hitting the books can both brings success.
So when I wake up each morning and look my workday in the eye, a little voice inside yells, “PLAY BALL!””
Thanks Tom. A good lesson for all who live to make contact and connections, work hard, play hard, attract success. There’s never a good time to get in the game, the time is now.
Until next time, thanks for taking the time.
