“The energy you’ll expend focusing on someone else’s life is better spent working on your own. Just be your own idol.” ~Sophia Amoruso


Looking at how people we admire live their lives, how they’ve learned from education and experience, and how they’ve dealt with adversity can be very helpful as we seek to better our own lives and become better people.  However, the most important action we can take is to go to work on ourselves:  Reflect on who and what we want to be, and what we want to bring to this world, understand our gaps, and begin to take specific and intentional actions to move us forward to becoming what we aspire to be.  In other words, learning and observing is fundamental, but taking action is the only way to get there.
