“You kind of took it for granted around the Yankees that there was always going to be baseball in October.”—Whitey Ford
If you do the work, you can expect the results. You can demand the excellence of your efforts.
It is not entitlement when you do the work, it is the reward for the sacrifice.
A culture of high performance, where everyone feels the burden of greatness and steps up as they should over and over again, should be held in esteem for this is the standard of excellence we should strive for.
