I love fantasy football.
Okay, it’s almost solely because of my love for the game and expanding my reason for watching all the teams in the National Football League. However, there are lessons that business can take away from it. Allow me to explain…
Fantasy football is all about quantitative performance data. Both good performances (touchdowns, yards gained, catches) and bad performances (fumbles and interceptions) are taken into account. At the end of the weekend, the team that performed the best overall – based on points scored – wins the game.
Because of that, I’m constantly keeping track of the players on my team and how they are performing. I can’t afford to not play the best players.
You can’t afford not to “play your best players.”
It’s easy to go week to week not focusing on performance. In your case, that means appointments set, proposals made, sales meetings, sales, products manufactured, etc. Who’s in charge of your quantitative data?
Coaches wear head sets on the sidelines and every conversation goes through the head coach’s headset. Are you aware of your “stats;” your performance?
Bottom line: If you don’t keep track weekly of your performance, then you will be less profitable and that impacts your company profitability and value. By staying attuned to your “stats,” you will be more likley to in every week of the year.
