Even if you’re doing what you love, your job can feel like work. And if it feels like work, then it’s not fun.
And if it’s not fun, then what’s the point?
This is something you’re doing all day everyday. If you’re really good at what you do, then you’ll take it home with you.
You’ll go home and watch film. You’ll go home and watch the games of the team you’re facing next. You’ll go home and make sure to drink water, eat your vegetables and take your vitamins.
It consumes your life…and you’re alright with that.
I know there are others who don’t have this dedication; whether that’s because they don’t need it or don’t care I can’t say.
I know I need it to stay here, to keep employed. I wonder if I would still live this way without reason?
I have some envy for those that can just roll out of bed and compete at this level because that’s not me.
