Growing up playing football the comparisons are exciting to me. I know I was not going to be a football coach when I graduated school, and the next best thing to coaching a football team was and is coaching a sales team. Think about it, both are made up of valued players, 4 quarters, you keep score per quarter, you run plays, you prepare and beat the competition, at the end of the quarter you are either ahead or behind, at the end of the game you either hit your number or you didn't, you either won or lost. I could go on and on but the comparisons are all over the fabric of both. Another observation is that all companies, The Home Depot, Nike, Amazon, Microsoft, etc are playing football. America loves football because it plays to our psyche, its binary, scientific, NO GRAY. You walk out of the stadium or the sales office knowing the exact score, you either won or lost. The results are final. You don't scratch your head and say "I wonder who won"? There is a sense of comfort in completion, finalization, closure. To me I know exactly where I stand. I never did "kinda win a sale, I never saw a football team kinda score a touchdown. No such thing. I can wrap my brain around sales and football because no matter what I know the score and that is my scorecard.
