What Do Professionals Do?
American writer and professor of biochemistry Isaac Asimov published more than 400 books in his lifetime because every morning he woke up at dawn and typed until noon.
He was able to do this not because he was a genius, more gifted, talented, or luckier than other writers but because he did what a professional does — he showed up every day, without fail, and went to work until noon.
What we know about professionals is they are serious, not curious, about doing their work.
Professionals produce even when they don't feel like it.
That is precisely what professionals get rewarded for doing.
That is the work and hallmark of a legitimate professional — producing something of value time and time again, without excuse.
