Leadership Quote: Yesterday's Home Runs…

 

This month’s leadership quote:

“Yesterday’s home runs don’t win today’s games”

-Babe Ruth

Not only don’t yesterday’s home runs win today’s games, the way we got to yesterday’s home run may not work today. While the past can be our teacher, it can also delude us. When we have been successful in the past, we often think that if we repeat what led to that success, we will have those same results, that same home run, again.

Sometimes it works.

More often, the players and leaders who achieve multiple home runs do so by pausing, noticing what is different and adjusting accordingly. And… they keep moving forward; expecting to work just as hard to get the next home run as they did to get the last one.
