The truth of the matter is, true differentiation – sustainable differentiation – is rarely a function of well-roundedness; it is typically a function of lopsidedness. The same can be said of excellence.*
There are many reasons why you have chosen your path. You knew it wouldn’t be easy and there are many obstacles and challenges, but we need you to keep going.
Yes, change and adapt as you go, but don’t turn aside. You transform the landscape and the lives you walk through.
This is your beauty.
