Are you a starter or a closer?

by Angela On June 16, 2008

I wouldn’t say that I am a big baseball fan, but I have been to my fair share of baseball games.  Growing up with a brother (Hey Danny) who was a baseball fan and having a husband who plays in an adult baseball league I have been to more Little League, Minor League, College, and Major League games than I can shake a stick at.  But I really didn’t pay much attention to the rules.  So recently watching a College Game, I learned that there were different types of pitchers.  There are starting pitchers and closing pitchers.   

The starting pitcher is one who can really get the game going in a positive direction with a lot of energy.  You put him in for the first several innings, but he typically can’t make it all the way to the end of the game.  He just runs out of energy and that’s when they bring in the “Closer”.  The closing pitcher is great at finishing the job and leading the team to victory!  The “Closer” is typically only good for a couple innings.   

So are you a starter or a closer?  Do you come into a project full of excitement and energy and then fizzle towards the end?  Or are you reluctant to start a job but once you do you can ensure spectacular results?  Knowing this information can really be helpful as you are planning projects, organizing or otherwise.  If you are a “starter” you may need to have someone or something that motivates you to get the job done.  If you are a closer then you may need to have someone just to help you get over the hump and get started.  Knowing where your strengths and weaknesses lie can be the key to being more productive and getting the right kind of support to help you excel.     

Are you a starter or a closer?  If you tell me what you are I’ll tell you what I am.  I’d love to hear from you.

Enjoy the good life,
