Post playing-career Kobe is just great...I love how he describes the journey and the process. Lots to take away from this short clip. The understanding of what it takes in unseen hours, and daily grinding to excel, is eroding I believe. This generation of instant gratification based on social "likes," and approval, does nothing to enlighten people as to what it takes day-in, and day-out to reach the top of whatever long term endeavour they are engaged in.
Study greatness. Look at those who deliver and execute.
Kobe Bryant won an Oscar (an OSCAR!!) within a year of retirement. He has now opened his own studio of creatives and story-tellers. He delivers. Period.
Shoot until you can't lift your arms, write even though your writing will suck for a long time, run up the hill until your lungs and legs are on fire,,,,,,and if you want to be great........do it all again tomorrow.
