The Difference Between Amateurs and Pros

The Difference Between Amateurs and Pros

I think I work hard on my businesses.

When I go to gym, I think I do enough to get the six-pack and look like a beast.

Then I get a glimpse on the high-performers and super successful people and how they do their stuff. Often, they’re more intense and deliberate in their actions. Look at Gary V. His always hustling and grinding.

Or, look at athletes. I know they’re pro athletes and they have to do different work-out, but if I want to look like an athlete, shouldn’t I train the same way?

Recently, I went to a gym with one of my friends who’s professional football (soccer) player in Europe.  He’s ripped. And the work-out he did was completely different from what I’m used to. It was so hard that If I had to do it all the time, I would cancel my gym membership after one week.

So I realize there’s a difference between amateurs and professionals. Working hard is one of them, but it’s not the only difference. Both can work hard.

There’s more to it.

I read a great post on Farnam Street blog on the topic. I want to share it with you.
