I was asked a question today that I get asked quite frequently.
"Do you ever stop working?"
The person who asked me isn't the first to ask, and they definitely won't be the last. When you create something from the ground up it rarely feels like work. At least, it should rarely feel like work. There were times when I would throw up my arms and say, "That's it, I'm going back to a 9-5 job, and I can leave work at work."
I can't stand working on someone else's project. I have no passion for something when I'm boxed in to one way of doing things. As I develop guidelines for future coaches at my gym, I hope that the bones I provide are strong enough to brace whatever evolution and style that coach produces. I do hold some belief that good coaches don't try to reinvent the wheel. They simply bedazzle it and attract a particular clientele who is drawn to their particular sparkle.
I want my coaches to sparkle. And I never want to work. Only create.
