One of the most interesting tidbits of information I’ve ever received is Know Thyself.
I believe this phrase originated, or at least is considered to have originated, from the oracle of Delphi as wisdom provided to Socrates.
I interpret this phrase to mean: Understand who you are at your core and what internal mechanisms drive compel to act.
The ability to dig deep into who you are and ask yourself what you want out of life and why you do it are the primary drivers to creating action.
Those questions are the core catalysts.
Once you know exactly what you want, you’re better able to formulate a plan to reach your destination.
Likely, there will be pivots along the way but a clear idea of what you want and why you want it will be the fuel that moves you.
Finally, as you’re on your path, you can seek mastery, which will allow you to dive deep into your craft(s) and ultimately become the highest level of yourself in all avenues.
