Wimbledon is like your business
Wimbledon is in full swing right now. (pun intended) I’m not a big tennis fan, but I do like to “drop in” from time to time and watch. Mostly watching the audience. It’s funny to see all those heads going back and forth in sync. And, of course, seeing the tennis games and audience makes me think of a business analogy. (What are the odds?)
Do you ever feel like you and your business are being smacked, like a tennis ball, back and forth. Maybe it’s your schedule, or your to-do list, or your clients. Whatever it is, it doesn’t feel good does it? Wouldn’t you like to change that? If so, I feel your pain. Like they say, “been there, done that.” But after working with scores of clients and developing a way to help define, plan, and implement systems, I think I can help you overcome that out-of-control feeling.
Pretend you’re a star player at Wimbledon
You’re known for your powerful serve. You’ve practiced and played hard your whole life to be here in this moment. On this grassy stage, Wimbledon, famous around the world as one of the top tennis arenas. You loft your first ball into the air and lift the racket to swing into the serve. Now, stop action! Let’s zoom into that shot a lot more closely. Zoom in. A little more. That’s it. A cropped shot of just the ball and the racket.
Which one do you think is about to feel the impact more?
Yeah, that’s right. The ball is about to get smacked beyond its ability to stand still. So, it’ll fly through the air, over a net, bounce on the ground, and get smacked again by another racket. And that poor, little ball will have no say-so in where it goes or how long or where it’ll end up. Here’s where my business analogy comes in…
Don’t be that ball. Be the racket. Because the racket controls the impact, pace, and direction. Much better and all important to your business.
I believe I can help you build your business better so you feel more like the tennis racket and less like the tennis ball.
