Living up to being a role model for others is a big job. We are human, we make mistakes, and we aspire to quickly learn and grow from them. But picking a role model is just as important. Seth Godin recently posted a short, impactful lesson on an “expert” opinion that was terribly wrong. Do you believe in your own ability in the face of others proclaiming to be experts? Think about your role models today and think about their views on innovation and their ability to inspire creativity. Do they push you to keep going, keep growing, and move beyond the status quo?
