Keep Your Eye on the Ball

By Greg McAfee

Besides needing capital to run a business, many different skills are needed to succeed. You must have leadership ability, people skills, know how to hire, systems in place, develop a culture, selling skills, creative thinking, patience, handle finances, training and yes, much forgiveness.

It’s easy for us at times to take our eye off the ball.
•When a long time employee, that you place much faith and confidence in, leaves without notice… keep your eye on the ball!

•When a previous employee(s) sues you and makes false accusations… keep your eye on the ball!

•When a customer refuses to pay you after they agreed to… keep your eye on the ball!

•When you are going through personal issues and family trials… keep your eye on the ball!

•When your phone does not ring as often as you like and you have trouble keeping your team busy… keep your eye on the ball!

•When your outgo exceeds your income… keep your eye on the ball!

•When you have to fire a friend or family member… keep your eye on the ball!

•When a team member scratches a very expensive piano or runs your truck through a building… keep your eye on the ball!

•When you can’t find good help… keep your eye on the ball!

•When someone wants to hurt you and your image… keep your eye on the ball!

The ball represents everything you’ve worked for- your calling, your dreams, your goals, and your future. Keep your eye on the ball and keep swinging!
