Happier with Gretchen Rubin
Little Happier: Michael Jordan Had a “Love of the Game” Clause
NOTE: This episode was recorded before the COVID-19 situation took hold. Given the rapidly changing situation, it may be jarring to hear me ignore it—and that’s why.
I love this example of an outstanding athlete staying true to his love of the sport, and being so determined to play that he made sure it was written into his contract.
