Talking with Scott is always like a shot of espresso! Here are my 3 insights for thriving:
- You never stay the same; you are either regressing or progressing. I’ve heard it said this way before, you are growing or slowing dying. Here is something to try: At the end of each day, as you are brushing your teeth, look in the mirror and honestly answer: how did I grow today?
- I loved his advice to his former self: learn from your past but don’t live in your past.
- When he was talking about competing, he said that he doesn’t mind facing better competitors because he is either winning or he is learning. I think that’s a powerful notion. Being afraid to lose is one of the things that can keep us in a game that is too small for our potential.
