What’s Sport Got To Do With It? Sports Terms in Business
With Olympic fever in the air, I thought it would be timely to encore and highlight one of our favorite sports related Home Biz Notes posts.
There are a lot of parallels between business and sport, and it’s interesting that a lot of the terminology we use in everyday business are sports terms.
- Hit a home run
- Carry the ball
- Slam dunk
- Always on the ball
- Game plan
- King hit
- Three strikes
- Run with it
- Play hardball
- Call the shots
- Team player
Can you think of any others sports terms used in everyday business? I’d love you to add your suggestions in the comments.
