As aspirational people (those who want to do), we often look to the inspirational people (those who have done it) for the keys to success.

We would do well to learn from those who are in media res (those who are in the middle of doing).  

Their stories provide the context of their decision making w/o the fog of memory, sanitization nor embellishment .

It’s why we love the the hero’s journey. We can follow the story as it unfolds. It’s exciting and we don’t know how it’s going to end.

Though it’s tempting to dismiss people who “haven’t made it yet”, I encourage you to reconsider and take advantage of what their journeys have to offer.
