I love this time of year. I am a fan of the leaves turning, the heat fading, and the grass slowing its growth. But the thing I love most about the Fall is college football. I do have a team I pull for, but if I tell you who it is, half of you will tune me out - the other half already have tuned me out when they heard me talking about sports. But not so fast. My goal with this blog is to bring sports haters and lovers together. In order to do that I invite you to join me at the stadium as we evaluate what is happening.
You are likely all familiar with the phrase from Forrest Gump - “Life is like a box of chocolates.” You never know what you’re gonna get. Well, I am here to tell you that Forrest was only partially right. Life may be like a box of chocolates, but you can know what you are going to get. Think about it like this, “Life is like a football game”. Before you determine that I have totally lost it, understand that my goal is to give you a visual that will help you evaluate your opportunities for success based upon your current position, team, and field of play.
Allow me to explain. I believe that every party at the stadium likely represents members of your team. For the sake of this blog, let me keep it simple. For more depth, please read my monthly column in Premier Flooring Retailer Magazine.
The game and your team all have the following:
The Field of Play - This field has boundaries and goals that allow you to measure your success.
Starting Line Up - These are the offensive and defensive players who are actively involved in achieving success for themselves and the team.
Players on the Sideline - This represents those waiting to get into the game...or hoping they never have to.
