Last year I was fortunate enough to spend time with some of the greatest modern day minds on the planet: Tim Ferris, Brian Grazer, James Altucher, Elon Musk, Angela Duckworth, Derek Sivers, Josh Waitzkin, Craig Balentine and so the list goes on. I was fortunate to spend time with people who are at the top of their game and making change in people's lives or the world. How did I do it? Podcasts, books, blogs, and videos put out by people who spend their time deep diving into performance, productivity, health, wealth and happiness. The traces of success are left in the foot prints of others. These people that I spend time with are relentless in their search for clues that we can take on board, ponder, and in some cases, mimic - however there is some advice we can delete from the desktop.
When you think about it this way, it makes even more sense to learn from people who are at the top of their game. My point is that there is so much gold to be found, the question is - will you spend time with people like these, or instead, is your day filled with activity and people who don't take you toward your dreams and aspirations.
Audit your day and work out where and how you can spend time with the world's best. Be brutal with your time as it is your most valuable resource. One call from a doctor and your most valuable resource can be taken from you. Use it wisely.
If the world's best are not adding value or entertaining you, then finish the conversation, delete the blog, video, podcast or take the book back to the library, and move on to your next conversation. I promise you spending 20 minutes a day with the world’s best will change your world. © GB
