Starting not so strong

How good you were at something when you began is a pretty useless measure for how good you can become at that thing.

I mean, the first tone that came out of my guitar was quite awful.

The first line of code that I wrote didn’t even compile.

The first story I wrote was pretty boring.

But I stuck with it.

Today, I’m a pretty decent guitarist, I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and I help leaders across the globe tell their story.

As Paul Arden put it: “It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.”
