Have you guessed Federer’s Dream Hobby?
Roger Federer last night secured his 300th week at #1 in the ATP Tennis rankings by defeating his good friend Stanislas Wawrinka 4-6 7-6 6-0 in a hard-fought match.
In the post-match interview he made these revealing comments:
“Sometimes you’re just happy playing. Some people, some media unfortunately don’t understand that it’s okay just to play tennis and enjoy it. They always think you have to win everything, it always needs to be a success story, and if it’s not obviously what is the point. Maybe you have to go back and think, Why have I started playing tennis? Because I just like it. It’s actually sort of a dream hobby that became somewhat of a job. Some people just don’t get that ever.”

So, there we have it. In case we hadn’t realised all these years. Federer’s dream hobby is playing tennis. Perhaps to the best of his ability. Perhaps at a level higher than all but the most elite of players in the professional history of the sport.
The question is, since you have found your way to this website: have you found YOUR dream hobby? If not, we would be more than happy to meet with you to help you address this question. You really ought to do something about this.
If you have, our deepest congratulations!
