The best players in pickleball have this one thing in common – they practice and work hard.
High school basketball coach, Tim Notke said, “Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.”
Whether in sports, a special skill, or even in business – this phrase rings true.
I love to play pickleball and in order to improve my game, I make the effort to practice. The same goes for business. Even though I have reached a certain level, I am constantly trying to get better by practicing, as it relates to my business.
When my company grew, I knew I had to grow in my leadership skills to lead the leaders in my company.
I actively take steps to practice becoming a better leader – I’m personally coached on leadership, I read books on leadership, listen to podcasts on leadership, and constantly put those things I’ve learned into practice daily.
As a business owner, or employee, we should always be growing and learning – or practicing – to be the best in our industry or career.
I want to be the best in my profession and grow with my business. Once a month I watch at least one webinar on the economy. I read specific business articles pertaining to my area of business and connect myself with other skilled players I can learn from that are thriving in the same arena of business.
Hard work is essential to business.
Even in a simple game of pickleball, it’s an opportunity to learn the importance of building and leading a successful team. It doesn’t matter what stage you are in, if you work hard and practice your skills, you will see the fruit of your labor.
