About 12.45 GMT yesterday, as I was driving
back home from a quick shopping trip at my
local superstore, I turned the radio on.
I don’t listen to the radio normally but Wimbledon
is on which makes these two weeks the most
unproductive weeks of my year. (every year!)
Whenever I get a chance to be a fly on the wall
and study the greatest achievers and masters
in any field, I jump at the chance.
Australian swimmer Ian Thorpe (nicknamed
Thorpedo) was being interviewed. He is
Australia’s highest Olympic gold medallist.
But having suffered injuries and other
problems, he hasn’t been competing for a while.
He was asked whether he would like to
compete still and get back to swimming —
or what the next step in his life would be.
In response Thorpe said “you know, I just
want to get back to swimming. Sure, I’m
motivated by the Olympics, winning my races,
but the thrill of just getting into the pool and
swimming… That’s what I really love.”
Yet another sign of someone who is a true
professional. (Just like we’ve been discussing
in recent e-mails.)
Someone who loves the work they do, not for
any goal or objective, and so in the end will
meet that goal anyway.
They do it, not for the end result, but for the
daily pleasure they experience.
You must also do this when it comes to building
an online business.
Your online business is a vehicle to give you
the freedom and money to live your dreams.
But it will not ever happen for you until you
‘fall in love’ with your art + practice.
For some people it is the sheer love of the
potential of the web that gets them jumping
out of bed to work.
For others, it could be the love of how Google
works, the SEO structures, winning the
Or better yet, like me, writing email, or blogging,
or workshops, or filming video episodes.
Or even just the love of business.
