We follow people on social media; get their newsletter updates, read their books, listen to their podcasts, and allow them to speak into our lives. We often do so because we want to learn from them, be encouraged, and consider them a part of our support network for achieving career and life goals.
At some point it is good to ask ourselves where they got their information from, who did they learn from, and who are they reading?
The people who lead are a compilation of experiences, education, growing knowledge, skills and talent. The people I follow are doing amazing things, they are where I want to be, and for me to be able to get there, and beyond, I need to be growing my knowledge base, and depth as a person.
