Picking a Lane


Life and work are all about exploration. Dabbling. Being a newbie. Learning something new. But at some point, if you’d like to make a name for yourself — you should pick a lane. Whether it is an interest at work or a personal style.

Dig deep under the surface and make a commitment.

Ensure it is a lane that reflects you. Is you.

It should meander, so it doesn’t limit you — yet still offers direction.

Make a statement. Make it memorable.

Then go and make a difference.
