You think you need a gym membership, the hippest headphones, or the nicest bike to be in good physical shape?
Think again, says former NFL star running back Hershel Walker.
3,000 push-ups and sit-ups every day?
That was and remains today the core of his workout regime.
OK, how about a little translation to entrepreneurship?
Good vs. Perfect -- Don’t wait until you acquire the best equipment or the latest tools. Don’t hold back until your product or service is optimally refined. Get out there and talk to prospects that might need your help. Let them tell you what they like and what deserves more attention.
Commitment vs. Hobbies -- Hershel wasn’t doing 25 push-ups, or just doing this intense routine whenever he felt inspired. It was a “must-do,” not a “do if I’m motivated today.” Consider the analogy of the chicken, which provides eggs, and the pig, which provides bacon. The pig, of course, is the more committed of the two.
So, what are 2-3 things can you do every day, in a way that is unique and valuable, to stand out from others, and get the chance to make bigger impacts?
