“You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”
When the late Jim Rohn said this years ago, it all sounded so simple.
But it’s been dang impossible to get any of these people to spend any time with me.
Now, I ask you, how can I ever hope to bump up “my average” if none of these folks will even return my calls.
And I can’t show up in person and just start begging them to spend time with me since their personal “gatekeepers” are no doubt merciless, muscular, and masters of kung fu.
Obviously, the five selective superstars I’ve been trying to connect with probably keep close tabs on their averages as well – and are quite content with their numbers right where way they are, without risking the embarrassing downhill slide including me would bring.
In one of his recorded workshops he said that every person who wants to tackle a big idea or goal must address four questions.
Why not you?
Why not now?
Rohn emphasized that these questions were also crucial points for pondering for every lifelong learner desiring to step up, whatever the challenge may be.
This makes perfect sense to me.
Maybe Rohn’s FOUR points for pondering could provide the magic necessary to attract the FIVE A-listers I needed to boost my average.
Imagine how that would inflate my average!
The five superstars beat me to the punch on those four points for pondering, too.
Even reaching a clear consensus!
No way Tom.
