I dust my four hard drives only if I feel like it.
I open Netflix only when I feel like it.
I text my old friends from my hometown only if I feel like it.
On the other hand…
I reply to all my business emails even if I don’t feel like it.
I brush my teeth even if I don’t feel like it.
I try to connect with business opportunities even when I don’t feel like it.
We need to decide which things we’re going to do regardless of feeling like it. This what being a professional means, and you only have to make the decision once.
Because feeling like it is a horrible prerequisite for being a professional and maintaining consistency, keeping your promises and building meaningful careers.
If you have to feel like it before you’ll do it, then you’re going to end up with dusty ass hard drives.
What do we do even when we don’t feel like it?
