What’s better than the open road?

A momentous day on Sugarloaf Mountain, MD in 2017

A friend once asked me, what’s better than driving with nothing ahead of you but the open road?

I replied, maybe when I’m trailing someone ahead of me. That way, they’d get pulled over for speeding if there’s a cop. And, I can draft off of their slipstream and save gas. And, I don’t need to worry about directions.

Maybe I missed the point.

We face a multitude of existential possibility each day. When you go alone, you could get pulled over, or run out of gas, or get lost.

If that open road scares you, then find a mentor who’s driving fast to trail behind. Once you get enough experience (at least 55,555 miles), you can pull away and find your own open road.

What is our value? How about our self-worth?

What’s our Value?
Marketplace Value = (Experience X Skills X Demand / Supply)

What about Self-Worth?

1. Increase Experience = Understand your habits and tendencies
2. Increase Skills = Influence your surroundings more effectively
3. Increase Demand = Give people something useful
4. Decrease Supply = Differentiate yourself

Self-Worth = (Self-Understanding X Ability to Influence X Giving Usefulness / Redundancy)

Everyone should take 5 minutes tomorrow and give gratitude for the self-worth they have and the opportunity to improve it.
