I’m a Professional
When you hire a plumber, they’ll come to your house and get to work. Plumbers don’t say, “I don’t feel like coming in today.” It doesn’t matter what they feel, they’ll show up. That’s what professionals do.
One of my biggest challenges last year was motivating myself to play the product management interview game. Now, I don’t need inspiration. Inspiration is for amateurs.
When it comes to writing and going to the gym, I don’t rely on motivation. Even if I don’t want to write or work out I still do it.
Whether it be interview preparation or even studying for school, It doesn’t matter if I feel like it. I’ll show up. That’s what professionals do.
