“As you travel through life, let this be our goal:
keep your eye on the donut
and not on the hole.
But what is the donut? What is a professional, anyway?
A professional is someone who can keep working at a high level of effort and ethics, no matter what is going on – for good or ill – around him or inside him.
A professional shows up every day. A professional plays hurt. A professional takes niether success nor failure personally.
In the end, for me it comes down to the work itself”.
