Some work. Some perform.
My maid works. Virat Kohli performs.
Workers do their tasks daily. They don’t train or practise daily. They just work.
Performers practise their craft daily. They train daily – away from the public glare. And then perform before you and me.
Workers aim to give you results. Performers aim to wow you with the outcome.
Workers do the routine – they avoid, and usually escalate, challenges. Performers revel in solving challenges.
Notice. Performs are always better respected and better paid than workers.
So, are you working, or are you performing?
