It’s consistent singles and a focus on the fundamentals.
In baseball it’s
✅ Base hits
In banking it’s
✅ Making loans
✅ Taking deposits
✅ Customer service
✅ Providing treasury services
✅ Knowing your balance sheet
Banking is built on the fundamentals in a way that few other businesses are.
Typically, you need to understand the nuances of the industry IN DETAIL if you want to have a great business.
Not in banking.
In banking, you just have to be committed to executing the fundamentals.
Sure, other things will come up that need to be addressed,
But that’s a small part of the job.
Stay focused on the core fundamentals of the business.
Aim for the easy base hits – Be consistent.
Sometimes you’ll hit a double, triple, or even a homerun…
But it’s consistency with the singles that builds a great bank.
