Hi Team...

I wanted to write you quickly before I jump on a zoom meeting with one of my favorite sales teams today!

My job is to get them fired up, excited, and ready to take on Q2- of 2020- starting now! Nothing is going to stop this group....

They are locked in, excited, and focused!!!

I gotta tell you... the fact that there was no Opening Day for Major League Baseball was a sad day for us baseball people....

But it got me thinking about the pro baseball season... and how long it usually is....

For those of you who have been in the game, you get this. It is a GRIND! Only the strong survive.

162 Games.

That is a lot of games.

Each one of those games though is a true battle. 

  • Some, it is because of the difficulty of the game itself.
  • Some ,it is so cold outside that it makes you question what the heck you are doing...
  • Some, well, you are a game out of making the playoffs and you have to win...

Either way, every game is a battle. 

The great players and managers realize this very important reality: EVERY GAME MATTERS.

The last thing you want to have happen is have 1-game left at the end of the season and you do not make the playoffs because you needed 2-wins to get there.

That is the WORST!!!

This is WHY we always say- that freezing cold game April 1st, or 2nd, or 3rd.. they matter as much as that last game of the season....

EVERY GAME MATTERS.

EVERY DAY MATTERS.

HOW YOU TRAIN AND PREPARE MATTERS.

So, if you are taking this time to just "hang-out" or seeing it as a vacation until the President says go... well, don't be wondering why you may be short come the end of the 4th quarter... 

Or, if you are a Coach and not all over your players right now, well, don't be surprised when they come back a little fatter, a little slower, and less fine tuned.

We MUST use this time right now to get better....

  • Learn something new....
  • Get in great shape....
  • Clean up your diet....
  • Engage those around you differently...
  • Spend less time on social media...
  • Figure out your CHAMPIONS STRATEGY...

How can you win 2020?

You can take action starting today.

Well, Coach, it is Friday... nobody is thinking about work or business right now...

WRONG- You Are!

Tomorrow is Saturday.

Rest during the weekend.

We must stay focused on our goals....

They are what we committed to heading into 2020....

Remember your vision.....

And, remember this: When others see you still working hard, they will too.

Peer pressure is real!

Now, let's not take things "As they Are"....

Instead, let's MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
