I’ve never been much of a sports guy, probably because I’m terrible at them.
I was six feet tall in 7th grade and everyone thought I’d be great at basketball. After I filled out a bit in high school, it was assumed I’d be a natural for football. For a while, it was even suggested that maybe my long legs might work for hurdling.
I managed to prove them all wrong.
So when I started working in sales and travelling and meeting with clients, I thought maybe I should take up golf because, you know. . .everyone in business golfs, right?
Let’s just say – it’s a good thing I can draw.
I feel your pain. I was pretty tall for a girl, too. Thin with long legs. But I had no interest in playing sports. I may have been well suited for track, but I wasn’t into it. Too bad there wasn’t extreme writing competitions!
How’s the saying go? All musicians wish they were athletes, and all athletes think they can sing. I wonder where entrepreneurs fall in there.
I’m a big fan of basketball as a sport. I thought I can be a good basketball player, but I think I have a better shot as a website builder and entrepreneur, so…
Entrepreneurship is a team sport, anyway… so it’s pretty close to basketball, I guess 😉
Just because one has the perceived physique for a particular sport doesn’t mean they’ll be interested in said sport. My nephews are really into their sports (rugby in particular). I’d never want them to feel pressured to do that or anything they didn’t want to do if they weren’t interested in it.
Competition Mini Golf! A lot less walking and a lot more fun!
