(not this kind.....)
Hey, Michael. If you're averse to baseball metaphors, how about one from hockey? Every now and then, a goalie will lose his focus and allow a goal that never should have made it to the back of the net. There's a saying usually hollered by a home team commentator: "If you're a goaltender, TEND THE GOAL! As you have a way with words, you could easily use the term "tend the goal" to provide inspiration to ensure that all of your, or your staff's goals are met.
Mr. Dorf you are prolific writer, amongst many other things. Thank you for putting your wise words out for many to learn from.
I like the word Deliver. All the time and money spent creating, designing, promoting, writing SOPs, training…is nothing if we don’t DELIVER.
And you have been delivering!
That is simply too generous. You are therefore a really nice person.
Tend the Goal. Goal Tender. Love me Tender. Fender Bender. I'm on a Bender. I see where your taking me.
