Learning from Others
‘Being unique is a great way to hide from the change we need when someone offers us a better future. Learning from the patterns and the people who have come before, though, is the only way any of us advance.’ Seth Godin
Life is full of opportunities to learn from others who have come before us. They have already done the hard yards and often made mistakes along the way. Like our parents, who tried to help us avoid pain through their insight, these people have learnt from the errors they made and can save us a lot of heartache.
This lesson has probably been my biggest take away from my writing career so far. I need to thank a handful of pioneering Indie authors who have paved the way for others. Jeff Goins, Joanna Penn, Seth Godin, Nick Stephenson and most recently Mark Dawson.
