What Did You Expect?

Monday Morning Match is a quick post - maybe a quote, inspirational story or idea - intended to spark some motivation inside each of you so your week gets off to a fantastic start on Monday morning.

It's finally football season and we're a few weeks into the season in both the professional and college game. Not everyone is a football fan but there probably aren't many people that don't have at least a passing interest in a team somewhere. It may be a local organization or perhaps a team from your childhood days or a former city where you used to live. Many of us are passionate fans of our alma mater or a team with ties to a family member.

Most of the college teams are one quarter of the way through their schedule while the NFL will complete Week 2 tonight. So let me ask you football fans...How's your team doing?

  • Are they undefeated and creating some excitement about what might happen this season? 
  • Are you pleasantly encouraged by what you have seen so far?
  • Or are you utterly disgusted with the effort displayed by the players and coaching staff?
While there is still a lot of season to be played, there is something to be said about expectations and how quickly they can be surpassed or squashed.

It's almost time for the 4th quarter in our business. Take a peek at the scoreboard.

Have you lived up to your expectations?

If you answered yes, keep it up. It's time to run up the score and build some momentum for the new year ahead.

If you can't say with confidence that you're on track to reach your goals, remember that the game isn't over yet. Don't give up. Keep executing the game plan, rely on the basics and focus on what is ahead of you.

Here's a cool video to kick off your week. Isn't it time you get in the game?

Expect success!
