Don’t learn from the average performer in the cubicle next to you.

The only skill that you’ll develop is the ability to do the bare minimum without anyone noticing.

Or the capacity to find something to complain about even in the best of situations.

Or the ability to meander through another meaningless year.

Learn from the best.

Watch how hard they work.

Read their books.

Take notes.

Notice their body language and attitude.

Build relationships like they do.

Observe how they interpret the world and deal with adversity.

Set a standard for your work that matches their’s.

Aspire to their level of greatness and give others a reason to learn from you.
