If you want to improve any area of your life, use the trick my big brother taught me – ski in the tracks of someone better! I apologize for the sound… I was trying to keep up with someone better – my big brother. 😉
Think about the major areas of your life and consider this question. “Who you are consciously following?”
Who are you following in the tracks of when it comes to the leadership area of your life? (As an example, I follow Dan Rockwell, Leadership Freak.)
Who are you following in the tracks of when it comes to the financial areas of your life?
I follow my wife, Andrea McBreen , in the health and fitness areas of my life.
How about your romantic relationships? (Hint: If you are taking relationship advice from your buddies you may want to consider skiing differently.)
mentor |ˈmenˌtôr ˈmenˌtər| noun an experienced and trusted adviser
You need a mentor in ALL areas of your life.
Actually, you already have mentors in all areas of your life; I’m asking you to consciously CHOOSE to ski in the tracks of mentors who inspire you.
Rock on, and (as always) be the best version of yourself by taking action before you are ready and focusing on your progress, not perfection!
Here’s a picture of my big brother and daughter #1.
