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.
