To Learn From My Predecessors, and Build Upon Their Knowledge

This was inspired by a post that Charlie Hoehn did. It’s something I’ve thought about often and somehow never acted on. I should have wrote this a long time ago.

I want to captivate people when I speak, like Steve Jobs did.

I want to be a masterful storyteller like Dave Chappelle or Louis C.K.

I want to live on my own terms while sharing what I’ve learned, like Tim Ferriss.

I want to err on the side of boldness, and live without timidity, like Tucker Max.

I want to capture people’s hearts and minds with captivating work like Ricky Gervais, and laugh as much as he does.

I want to learn fearlessly and with determination like Neil Strauss.

I want to be able to create a spectacle, if necessary, like Justin Ross Lee.

I want to absorb knowledge and read as prolifically as Ryan Holiday, and network as well as he does.

I want to network and be true to my self like Charlie Hoehn has actively done.

I want to be able to act powerfully, like Tom Hardy.

I want to know history, like Robert Greene.

Ultimately, I want to have a story to tell. One that only I am qualified to tell.

The goal is not to mimic them, but to learn from them, to collaborate and work with them, and eventually form my own way of doing things. Who influences you?
