Finally finished the Jordan book- it was fantastic. At the end of the day, I can’t say I want to be exactly like Michael Jordan, but here were the main things I want to adopt:
Focus: The man broke a large task into chunks, and then just focused on doing that chunk to the best of his abilities. That translates to essentially taking it one day at a time, and making sure you did your best on that day.
Passion: He loved what he did. You can’t burn out on doing what you love. I love reminding myself of that. It helps me work harder.
Hard Work: He was the best because he outworked everyone, plain and simple. There’s no substitute for hard work, and if anyone tells us otherwise, they’re full of it.
Passion+Hard Work= Greatness.
