Is it possible to give it all to everything you do?
A few months back I wrote a blog post to mark the anniversary of Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak. In the post, I shared what I consider to be the key elements of Joe DiMaggio’s Playbook: a “Give It All” mindset, a commitment to excellence, creating a streak/consistency, and the importance of grace in both your behavior and contribution to others.
The post resonated with a lot of my readers, friends, and associates. That wasn’t a surprise because, after all, it was about one of the most iconic figures in our cultural history. What did surprise me was that I got the same two questions again and again:
- How do you give it all to everything you do?
- How can I pull these ideals into my life and take action on them? Especially in today’s complex and over-committed world?
