If you’ve read this blog before you probably know that I can’t stand average. In everything I do I try to break free of the typical and become extraordinary.
This week I was listening to a time management seminar from Robin Sharma and he said something directly to me. He said, “Deacon, in everything you do strive to be unique. Strive to be extraordinary.” (Okay, I added the “Deacon” part, but the rest is true)
Maybe it’s not the most revolutionary advice you’ve ever heard. After all, I’ve worked to craft Life Stoked into something unique. I’ve worked to build it into something that no one else is doing.
But Robin went on to challenge me to be unique in other areas of my life because “that’s what successful people do.”
