Balance, Alignment, Follow Through

In my marketing class, my teacher was talking about three of the most important things for everything in life (and as usual, lessons in life can be applied to business). The lessons are:

  • Balance
  • Alignment
  • Follow Through
Balance - In sports, you need balance to hit a ball or run in a straight line. In life, you need it so you don't get burned out. You need to find that balance between family, religion, business, recreation, and everything else in your life.

Alignment - In sports, alignment helps you drive a golf ball straight or swing a baseball bat. In life, alignment is important so you put your priorities in order.

Follow Through - Follow through. Swing through the pitch. Keep running through a tackle. Finish your golf swing. If you start a project, finish it. If you make a decision, stick to it. There was a picture on pinterest that said "If you're tired of starting over, STOP GIVING UP."

And then he showed a video, which is about baseball. And families. And a father playing ball with his daughter. And oh my gosh I was on the brink of tears because I want this. But the time isn't yet. But I still can't wait. I'm just really excited for the future, when I get to play ball with my kids. And then hope they remember the things I taught them when it really matters. More than baseball. You know. The really important stuff.

Hope you enjoyed it. :)
