#707: Be Willing To Get Your Hands Dirty [WOYG Podcast]
My first basketball coach told us, at the beginning of practices, that anyone who showed himself to be a consummate garbage man — a player who was willing to do the dirty work that many glory and points-seeking players abhor — would guarantee himself a spot on the roster. Though we all wanted to be on the team, who ever wanted that garbage man role would have no competition for the spot. The coach knew that.
In life today, what keeps many people from getting to where they want to be is a distinct unwillingness to do the dirty work: the unshareable, not-pretty tasks that must be done to bring plans to conclusions. I’ll explain what that dirty work is, and how to condition yourself to do it, today.
