Former New York Yankee catcher, Yogi Berra, is famous for his mind boggling quotes. Most of Yogi’s quotes make very little sense and leave you scratching your head. He once said,”If you don’t know where you are going, you’ll end up someplace else.” At first sight this quote seems just as wacky and crazy as some of the other quotes he has given us. Upon further review I actually think Yogi may have known what he was saying with this one!
We often discuss the importance of setting goals and having a clear map to accomplishing these goals. Each of you should be receiving a laminated copy of your quarterly goal in the mail in the next couple of days. I encourage you to post these in your office in a place that you will see throughout the day. This quarterly goal will help you know “where you are going.” I also think it is a good idea to update it at the end of every week with a dry erease marker to help you know “where you are now.” These two things should keep us from ending up “someplace else.”
“Always go to other people’s funerals, otherwise they won’t come to yours.”
“You can observe a lot just by watching.”
“Nobody comes here anymore, its too crowded”
“It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”
Hope you have a great day…Louis
