Getting tuned to the process : drawing inspiration from sports legends

“Whatever you want to do, do with full passion and work really hard towards it. Don’t look anywhere else.” – Virat Kohli, Captain of the Indian Cricket Team

If you’re wondering if an early career program has anything common with sports  – we have news for you – there are many things in common! Are you surprised? Read on to learn more.

What do the most elite athletes do? Does a world-famous cricket player magically appear on the pitch one day and score a century? Can someone run like lightning just based on their luck of the day? Can a team win without effort? What turns performers into winner?

Andre Agassi, one of the greatest tennis legends of all times said, “ If you don’t practice, you don’t deserve to win.” Sir Mo Farah, multiple Olympic, World and European champion and one of the world’s greatest long-distance runners put it simply,  “Don’t dream about winning, train for it”.

What can we make out from these quotes from these sporting legends?

Any seasoned sports professional will tell you that there is no replacement for dedication to their training protocol. Even those with a natural ability to excel in a sport – enroll themselves in a disciplined training program from a young age and more importantly, stay committed and follow through on it to stay ahead of the curve. Anyone who plays sports for personal or professional reasons will talk about the importance of practice and the importance of repeating the same tasks again and again in order to improve. They have their eyes firmly on a goal and avoid distractions at all costs.

M.S. Dhoni, one of the greatest cricketing legends of India mentioned in a past interview  that in today’s world, people are focused on by-products and lose sight of the process. He advices youngsters that the ‘process is more important than the result’ and if one takes care of the process and all the small things in the process – the desired result will naturally follow.

Yes! Process is important. When it comes to your professional future and personal development – investing in a process-oriented early career program like HCL Tech Bee will give you the opportunity to engage in a  structured training protocol and enable you to practice what you learn repeatedly till you become very good at it in the workplace.

Of course, there is the added benefit of feeling secure that you will have a credible job at the end of the training.

Just like sportspersons train themselves from a young age to get better at their game, you too can train ourselves efficiently and energetically to hone your professional skills and be successful in the workplace.
