Was up late watching the Rays v. Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALCS. Unlike Game 1 – this was a slug fest.
9 innings of ball normally are all that’s needed in baseball – but last night it went 11. The Rays came out on top 9-8.
Now, think of this about the following score. The Rays Manager, Joe Maddon, gave the team a 9=8 slogan to ponder.
When I first saw it on t-shirts I thought, “Huh. What does that mean.”
I tried to figure it out without using Google. After an hour I was able to see that it had some relevance to nine players and nine innings.
But what did the ’8′ mean.
It meant 9 players playing nine innings at 100% – leading to them being one of only 8 teams in the playoffs.
There’s even more to Maddon’s mathematics – his crazy math – than the above – but you get the idea. By using math is a different way – he opened the imagination of the WORST team in baseball – and thus far has guided them to the final four teams that remain. He led them from “worst to first.”
Think of this as you read through 101 Ways to Magnetize Money. The entire book is about getting you to Imagine Different – to see things in a new way – to do things you’ve never done before.
If Maddon’s Math can take the Rays from worst to first – what can 101 Ways to Magnetize Money do for you.
Make sure you have the book with you as a daily reminder of what CAN and WILL be accomplished – if you’ll take the DARE and DO test.
Go to here and order now.
P.S. By the way, to read more on Maddon’s Math – use Google. It’s far too complicated for me to explain here.
