Baseball taught me the basics of everything I feel like I ever needed learn to survive in the real world. The game troubled me. As a matter of fact, so does the real world. It was laden with failure and what felt like injustice. It taught ruthless lessons of long-road commitment, focus on the process, and living in the moment.
Even at the highest level, the conversation stays process oriented. How about these words from our hitting coach at the pinnacle of our NCAA Division I title run?
“All you can do is all you can do and that’s always enough.”
-Jay Johnson (Head Coach – Arizona Wildcats)
PHEW! Thank goodness. Baseball used to trick me into thinking I’ll need to do more. Life plays the same tricks now. Isn’t it a relief to hear that your best effort is enough?
