Two is the Magic Number


by Brandon Steiner July 20, 2014 0 Comments

We have this thing at Steiner Sports, it’s “Two Things.”

You see, one is never enough. You can’t say, “I have one thing to talk to you about.” It just doesn’t seem like one is enough, right?

And three, don’t even get me started on three! Three is way too many. “Can you please do these three things for me?” Nope, doesn’t work.

Two is the right number, don’t you think?

Think about it: the two most important books in your life are:

  1. Your date book
  2. Your check book

THAT should give you some perspective on where you spend your time and where you spend your money.

The two most important days of your life:

  1. The day you were born
  2. The day you figured out why you were born (what’s your purpose?)

There are just two things I know for sure:

  1. You can plan for what’s about to happen, or
  2. You can deal with what just happened

Two is the magic number. That’s why at Steiner Sports we count by two’s.
