Batting 1000 and Writing like you mean it

Using a baseball analogy who bats 1000?  Can anyone?  No, batting 1000 is a metaphor and really not attainable no matter how a baseballer would like it.

However, it is an intentional effort to do your best every time single time.  In life victory is not guaranteed so the goal is not to have flawless victory every time but to not be defeated. (Note: This line is a paraphrase of a line in the Eric Van Lustbader novel, The Miko.)

Do not aim for the wall when trying to hit a ball but instead ensure your swing is true, the momentum is just right, perfect your stance, your body tenseness, your mood, the pitch and everything will come together at the right time.  A homerun.

Trying to hit a homerun every time is not the objective.  Trying to connect with a well hit ball is the goal.  Many well hit balls will ensure you are not defeated if they are singles, doubles and triples, as well as, homeruns.  If perhaps several of them are homeruns then that is victory and you will succeed.

Let’s play ball, Dear Writers.

Let’s optimize your chances for victory while avoiding defeat.
