Set a goal just beyond your current ability to motivate yourself to stretch beyond your comfort zone.
Practice with intense focus.
Get feedback, in whatever way you can, and incorporate that feedback into your practice.

Don't walk alone. It takes a village to reach a goal. No matter how independent, stubborn, or strong-willed you are, you are going to need people in your camp who've got your back. Taking on a big dream by yourself is a recipe for frustration. Even if you can perform each task better than anyone else, trying to perform them all will provide you diminishing returns on productivity and results.

One reason is we’re listening to interrupt with our ideas or rebuttals. We listen so we can jump in with our perspective. Or we’re worried we’ll forget what we want to say if we listen for too long. We focus on our own communication, rather than listening to understand others.

I have worked for all sorts of people since then, geniuses and morons, quick-witted and dull, bighearted and narrow.

the main reason for the inception of the Jamaica Festival was to "have something to mobilise the spirit of the people", and what better 'something' to mobilise that spirit than music, and it came in the form of the 'Festival Song competition'. The inaugural year, 1966, was a memorable one for Jamaica, with the visit of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I to the island in April; Jamaica's rocksteady beat was somewhere in its embryonic stage and the ska beat was on its way out.

Since the creation of Jamaica Festival in 1963 by the Honourable Edward Seaga, the minister of development and welfare at the time, no single portion of the event has served to galvanise the sense of nationality and celebration of our culture than the selection of the festival song. According to Mr Seaga, "When the Jamaica Festival was first initiated by me in 1963, it was primarily structured to create a home for diverse bits and pieces of festival-type activity which was occurring sporadically."

The music, while providing entertainment for the slave owners, was also used in a sly way to convey messages among slaves, a message only they understood. It thus became the most effective tool in their efforts to unite, incite unrest, and lobby for emancipation.

Newcomers to a high-performing team also can pick up good work habits, such as meeting deadlines and listening carefully, says Marc Landsberg, CEO of the Chicago social media agency Social Deviant.

Jobvite, a San Mateo, Calif., recruiting-software company, often seats new employees next to a high achiever. “It’s a form of orientation,” says CEO Dan Finnigan. He has noticed engineers gravitating toward their strongest co-workers, or those with the freshest skills. “You can pretty quickly figure out who’s got the extra juice, or the greatest insight. People are drawn to it. You can almost see the pathways on the floor,” Mr. Finnigan says.

Defining a high-value customer growth mission, by contrast, narrows the aperture to focus on the organization.

We 0:00-4:43 girls aren’t supposed to have any country for men like you because you don’t deserve it. And yet here we all are. With visceral reactions to an album that reminds us how we never got to “4:44”- all you gave us was “Song Cry”.

And I did. I cried.

Because I saw the best in you. I nurtured it, pruned it, watched it grow. And now someone else gets to sit in the field of my flowers. I can’t even fault her though. I’m sure our stories are similar. I’m sure, before you, there was one who robbed her of hope too. I’m sure he allowed her to invest in him with no intention of ever offering a return.
