The role of the professional

A true professional shows up no matter what.

Imagine if your heart surgeon decided she didn’t really feel like replacing hearts today right in the middle of your surgery.

 ’Well, I’m kind of over all this blood, I’m going to a beach.’

But she doesn’t go to the beach. Because she’s a professional. 

A professional is not immune to thoughts of doing other things. Nobody is. But a professional deals with them accordingly.

A professional knows there’s a job to do, a mission to complete. 

There will be times where you don’t want to do the thing you know you have to do.

And in that moment you a choice. A choice whether to take on the role of the professional.

 ...or not.
