The 4th Quarter

The 4th Quarter

It’s October. You know what that means. Fall weather, the change of leaves, trick or treating, bonfires … and football. Like or not, the season of the pigskin is fully upon us. I for one don’t mind. I like the sport.

Many sports in general are played or carried out in segments of some kind. There are innings, frames, periods, sets, matches, holes and halves. A football game is played in quarters.

Most businesses look at how they operate and perform in terms of quarters. For many of these organizations, they are in the fourth quarter. You might be on one of those teams.

What you need to keep in mind is that often major adjustments, if needed, take place during the final moments before the clock ends while there is still time to make a goal.

Here’s a challenge; find the adjustment you could make that would elevate your performance in this last quarter of the year.
