(Baseball season is here) Don’t take your eye off the ball!

Posted by Admin in Sumo Blog

Last weekend at Seed Sumo for a Day (a preview of the Seed Sumo campus and overview of the program), Brazos Valley Bombers Owner, Uri Geva made a somewhat comical point due to the parallel to his business (baseball) but the truth is quite evident… Not that we need validation from Inc. to know this lesson is valuable, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. Geva recommended to:

“Keep your eye on the ball.”

Here is what Inc.com had to say:

Why are some people more successful than others? There’s really no mystery: It’s because they do things differently than people who are less successful. Here are six things that very successful people do every day. Embrace these habits and you can greatly accelerate your own success.

1. Keep Your Eye on the Ball

Don’t let the obstacles in your path keep you from your goals. View challenges as opportunities to learn and grow. To stay ahead, in business or anything else, you must be able to see situations from all angles and adopt the broadest possible perspective. If your ride has been a smooth one you won’t be prepared for the inevitable bumps.

Every major startup begins with a goal in mind. There is a great idea someone has, that is so compelling they act upon it. Along the way, there will be many distractions thrown at you, many other great ideas (because most entrepreneurs are really good at coming up with good ideas and life hacks). The key is to not fall in love with the idea, but “keep your eye on the ball,” with the ball being your end goal - chances are that is profitability.

    Great post guys! The movie MONEYBALL shows these similarities perfectly. It also doesn’t hurt that Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill are in it. We’ve all seen it here at ChimpMint, we highly recommend watch it.
