Isn’t it supposed to be fun ? Like why do I write and express myself if it ain’t fun?
I used to have a site called Getting Off The Bench. It was all about creating media which would inspire people to play the game and create. Businesses, books, blogs….just to stop watching what others are doing and get out onto the park with them.
Looking back on that time, there was so many amazing things I achieved. Getting free office space in a marketing company, interviewing one of my heroes Andrew Warner, getting professional video interviews done for free, creating a podcast on itunes….
I’ve yearned for that spirit. I didn’t know what I was doing at the time. I was doing it because I enjoyed it.
It was fun.
Professional athletes all start in the same place. Playing football down the park or racing there friends in the street. And they keep doing it.
Because they love the game.
I lost that element of fun. That’s the basis of everything. As the journey continues there will be days where it is certainly not fun.
But that is where it starts.
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary they say.
Well guess what comes before both of them?
