EVERY DAY IS A NEW OPPORTUNITY. YOU CAN BUILD ON YESTERDAY’S SUCCESS OR PUT ITS FAILURES BEHIND AND START OVER AGAIN. THAT’S THE WAY LIFE IS, WITH A NEW GAME EVERYDAY, AND THAT’S THE WAY BASEBALL IS. BOB FELLER
IMAGINE IF YOU HAD BASEBALL CARDS THAT HELD ALL THE PERFORMANCE STATS FOR YOUR PEOPLE: BATTING AVERAGES, HOME RUNS, ERRORS, WIN/LOSS RECORDS. YOU COULD SEE WHAT THEY DID WELL AND POORLY AND CALL ON THE RIGHT PEOPLE TO PLAY THE RIGHT POSITIONS IN A VERY TRANSPARENT WAY. RAY DALIO
THE BIGGEST THING IS TO HAVE A SWAGGER WHEN YOU TAKE THE FIELD. WHEN YOU’RE NOT GOING WELL, YOU HAVE TO CHANGE SOMETHING – THE BIGGEST THING IS THE WAY YOU CARRY YOURSELF. YOU HAVE TO WALK LIKE YOU BELONG WITH THE BEST, GO UP TO THE PLATE LIKE YOU KNOW YOU BELONG WITH THE BEST. THAT’S SWAGGER. BRUCE BOCHY
