Loving the Work
If you have been reading this blog in the past week, you will know that I am enjoying working out with my daughter at the gym. We have a lot in common and I see something in her that I know was something that set me apart from my adversaries and competition. She likes the work. She enjoys the gym. She isn’t enamored with the results. She likes the idea of getting up early and working out. She likes the feeling of accomplishment after the workout. She likes the atmosphere of self-improvement. That will make her a great teammate someday and I am really enjoying our time in the mornings to talk about how important that mindset is. She is discovering her work ethic. It’s a big moment that many never have because they only ever work hard to avoid hard work. Seems silly and counterproductive when I put it that way. It’s actually easier to just enjoy the work that matters.
