#98 - What About Your Profession?

I think baseball is the best profession.

Everyone’s profession is different. Take a meteorologist, they are not right all the time, yet we plan our day by their forecast. They see rain and it doesn’t rain. A heart surgeon, we want to be right 100% of the time. Then there are professional baseball payers these guys fail 7 or 8 times out of 10 every time they bat, these 300 hitters are getting paid millions to play.

Now think if your heart doctor was only right 3 out of ten times. He might start thinking he should play
baseball.

Now I am a gemologist and I know my clients want me to be right all the time. You know I want to be right all the time, but sometimes we fail, and I guess that is the nature of man.

Let’s go back to that baseball player, I watch them go up to bat and strike out. What does the guy do? He walks back to the dugout with his bat in his hands and looks out toward center field. Every time. I wondered why and I figured it out, center field is the farthest part of the ballpark away from where he is. He cannot see the fans look of disgust from that distance. If he turned around where the fans were closer what do you think he would see.

So I got to thinking about my 12 x 12-foot office and I strike out, like chip some ladies diamond, I have nowhere to look except at her.

So I thought even more and what if I did enough business that I could have an office the size of Yankee Stadium! I could set up my desk somewhere between home and third base and when I have to tell some woman that I chipped her diamond I can turn my chair and look out to center field.

Then they can pay me the big bucks.
