Here’s an experiment.
On a piece of paper make two lists.
The first list is of people you admire & look up to and whom you’ve never met.
The second list is people you look up to who you do know.
Now – there are two things to look at here.
Number one – how are you going to make a plan to meet the people you look up to? In my experience, meeting your heroes & heroines is one of the most valuable things you can do – ever.
Number two – of the people you know that you admire – how many of them are in your daily circle of people you meet and interact with?
Because ideally, in your daily work, you want to spend as much time as possible with people who inspire you, encourage you and get you to up your game.
Environment is a HUGE factor in whether you grow – or slowly die.
