Working Right Over Just Working Hard
Can across this awesome article byI wanted to share please read below:
If you working right, take the right route, and do the right things, and then go the right way, you’ll have it made in business!
You could work as hard as you want to work. You can work, in theory, as smart as you think you are working. If you are not working right, it doesn’t matter. Got it?
A friend of mine learned the importance of this when he was playing high school basketball. He learned this when he was a junior in high school, right after my junior year in high school. He found out that the 3-point shooting line would be used in high school. Therefore, his goal was to get a basketball scholarship being good at the 3 point line shots!
He realized, “I am not the quickest. I am not the fastest. I do not have a talent like a lot of these other kids.” He thought to himself, “What if I learned to be decent shooter?” This new 3-point thing, of course, he thought every team would need someone who can shoot from that distance if the game is on the line thought line. He planned to make that his unique selling proposition. He did not know there was a business factor called a Unique Selling Point aka USP back then, but he did think what if that became his uniqueness, his talent, his skill?
To achieve this goal he went to the nearest playground. He brought some sidewalk chalk and a tape measure, then I went to the basketball court to measure off and mark-off a three-point line. He went out there every day all day long in the hot sun in the summer before his senior year. He was out there just shooting balls, you know, shooting, working hard shooting, getting used to this new three-point thing. He kept this up for maybe 6 weeks, and without making a shot.
Finally, one sunny afternoon, he had enough. It was useless. He could not make the shots. Kicking the ball across the court, hitting the fence while taking off his jersey and tossing it to the side, along with some language that should not have said a neighbour was watching.
I found it extremely helpful. Hopefully you will too. Please finish reading the article here “Working Right Over Just Working Hard“:
