The world has been abuzz with all things Derek Jeter these days….his career, his accomplishments, and his professionalism on and off the field.
I am a big believer in the parallels between sports and business and have found that my 47 years (and counting) of competitive swimming have set a framework for my business activities.
In this context, I see Derek Jeter as providing us with three key rules for success:
1. Work Hard
2. Always be Prepared
3. Make Things Happen
Derek’s success was built on this foundation. We will all be well-served if we do the same.
