Being a Professional?

Guest Author - Amy Packham

"A professional is a man[or woman]who can do his best at a time when he doesn´t particularly feel like it." Alistair Cooke


Occasionally I come online to write an article with an idea I have picked up for a quote throughout the week, however other times I simply log on hoping to find something interesting on an internet search. The truth is, having a daily quote on the BellaOnline admin page is a way that could generate an article every day. I try to refrain from simply using these quotes for my articles unless I read one which stands out and applies to things that have happened in my week.


I am currently on work experience at The Times national newspaper in London. Having never had a 9-5 office job, or been in an office which is as important as 'News International', it is interesting to see how the wonderful world of work goes on behind closed doors. Obviously working in newspapers, there is such a high demand of pressure to get stories written, papers published, ideas evolving... etc. When I read the quote that came up on BellaOnline today I thought it related very much to the atmosphere I am in at the moment. I found it inspiring to see both men and women in the profession that I aspire to be in, working long and hard hours, eating their lunch at their desks and proclaiming this business-type identity that I could only inspire to be like.


This quote related to such an experience as it made me wonder how they reached this profession that I am so determined to pursue? It is the idea that no matter how much pressure from work and out of work, no matter how many deadlines there are or how little - you still have to work the best you can and prove that you should be in this job. I think that is how this quote explains and defines someone as being a 'professional' in that field. Although you might be aware of your talents and attributes to a certain career, the way that you can be defined as a professional is by using them all at times, when they are needed the most and when they are not needed as much.


The stress from home life/finances/family/relationships can always be a factor which could affect your work life but it is a way of focussing on different aspects of your life depending on where you are and what is expected of you at that moment in time.
