It’s 1 and/or 2 but not 3

1) Those who make the map. They carve their way; strategize and come up with a plan. They go first.

2) Those that genuinely ask for help, insight and feedback. They are humble and extend an invitation to be changed by others.

3) Those that don’t want to do the work: they just want the answers; they don’t want to be changed or challenged; they mainly want affirmation of what they’ve already decided.

We oscillate in and out of all three. The important thing is to have the self awareness to know when you’re operating in #3. Since #1 and #2 feed off each other, if you do even a little of #2 then soon enough you’ll be on the upward cycle to contribution and creation rather than consumption.
