Pick a Lane, Not a Bowling Alley

Two conversations in the past week.

The first one the person says he stayed in the same line of work for 28 years and then sold off his piece of the business for enough to retire very, very comfortably.

The second one the person talks about the many different ideas he’s tried in multiple industries and completely different types of jobs and now just wants to get a job that he can intentionally do a mediocre job at in order to get a pension.

The first person chose a lane, and the second one chose a bowling alley. The first one struggled for the first three years, but he hung in there. The second one was a star out of the gate, and then constantly kept changing jobs for 30 years.

What lane will you commit to for a decade, and then step by step get better and better and better at doing?
