Joys of Compounding Chapter 5: The Importance of Choosing the Right Role Models, Teachers, & Associates in Life

Books are a priceless source of wisdom.

But people are the ultimate teachers, and there may be lessons that we can only learn from observing them or being in their presence.

In many cases, these lessons are never communicated verbally.

- Guy Spier

  • Clearly define what you are looking for.
  • Look for people who achieved results similar to your goals.
  • Look for people who had the same problems and study how they overcame them.
  • If you have trouble staying motivated, look for inspirational people.
  • If you lack discipline, look for disciplined role models.
