Doing it Well Means Doing The Work…Even When It's Fun

Sometimes we look at famous comedians and assume they were just born funny and that they don’t have to work at it.  In the movie Comedian, Jerry Seinfeld works his material over and over and over.  Similarly, I spoke with author and columnist Dave Barry and he admitted that writing humor was terribly difficult and that he had to work hard at it every single time he sat down to write.

Recently Fast Company magazine featured a day in the life of Conan O’Brien.  It’s a wonderful article that shows how hard Conan works to put on a hilarious show every night.  You can see the full article here:  Conan O’Brien Conaco Article

These examples show that no matter what we do, we must constantly strive for excellence.  Even if our work is a joke!
