Work, work, work. Don't you need to practice?

Entrepreneurs and business leaders are known for working hard. So when do they get to practice for work? Not often.

However, did you know who the highest paid people are? Entertainers and Athletes are surprisingly; and nother interesting fact is that they spend more time training then any other occupation. So what can entrepreneurs learn from this?

If you want to be the best in the world, you have to practice. How you do that, is up to you. The point is you have to identify skills you want to improve and start working on them. Leadership, public speaking, or even technical skills that are critcal to your business have to be targeted and trained so they become second nature.

The military will train soldiers to the point that they stop thinking and just act out of habit. The idea is that they will follow their training durring the choas of battle. As an Olympic level sailor I trained so that when race day came everything was instinctual. An active brain always gets in the way of optimal performance. Practice and train the skills you desire to the point that they are second nature. It will make you a better business leader.
