Pick a Lane

bus laneAt a certain point you have to make a choice.

You might be good at a lot of things, but you can’t pursue two things at once. Our brains weren’t designed for this.

I know other people have used this phrase before, but I attribute “pick a lane” to Joe Calloway, author of Be the Best at What Matters Most.

Read it.  It’s a phenomenal book.

It helped me to focus on my passion and go for it.

Another important lesson to remember is: Don’t worry about picking the wrong lane.  First, if you’ve done the homework of winnowing down your choices, you really are picking between 2 or 3 legitimate choices.  No losers here.

Second, trust that your interests, passions, and strengths naturally develop and mature over time.

What you consider a lane right now will probably look different 5 years from now.

I hope it does! It means you’re growing, improving, and seeing things in a totally new way!

This means you’ve progressed in your journey.  Different view.  New perspectives.

But step #1: you need to pick a lane.

You won’t progress in your journey until you pick a lane.
