I recently acquired two wooden tennis rackets which I think are pretty cool.
I now have the rackets hanging on the wall in my office, and every time I look at them I start to think…
Is sport really that different from business?
Perhaps I’ve over-thought this, but it seems there a quite a few similarities to me:
- Always do your best (no matter who your competitor is)
- Play hard, but play fair (and play by the rules)
- Be a good sport (be humble, shake hands at the end)
If you’re having trouble being motivated by the money or the task at hand, grab your nearest piece of sporting equipment and become your favourite sportsperson for just a moment.
