Learning to be awesome at anything you do, including being a leader | Tasha Eurich

Step 1 is to know thyself.
Then on the right hand side for each skill, on a scale of 1 to 10,
I want you to imagine that you only got better at that,
and then rate how much more awesome you would be.
Start with the highest number and work your way down.
So, you know yourself, you've got your one thing.
What makes someone exceptional is that they earn it through daily practice.
Everyday on his way to work he'd think about what he was trying to improve,
and he'd make a plan to practice it.
Then on the way home, he would think about how he did,
and maybe some ideas for what he would the next day.
In sum total, Steve probably spent less than 30 minutes a week doing this,
and he saw massive returns.
So, everyday, I want you to jump out of bed and say,
"Today is the day I'll get better at my one thing!"
But every day you'll learn, and every day you'll get better.
Know thyself. Pick one thing. Practice daily.
