At a championship little league game a nine-year-old struck out and shuffled back to the dugout, bat held limply, slumped shouldered, head hanging. A teammate saw him and asked, “did you swing?” The dejected boy said, “yes, at all of them.” “Well, that is really good then!” said the teammate.
Just swinging counts.
Just like in baseball, in our organizations, we will not always make a home run. Most of the time, we will not even hit the ball. But swinging counts because the more swings we take on behalf of our members, the better the chance we have of hitting one and maybe someday we will knock one out of the park.
