You want to be a rockstar? Awesome! Do you have a band?
No? Oh. Well, you can’t be a rockstar until you have a band. Can you play an instrument?
No. I see. Well, you probably won’t form a band until you know what your place there is.
Your ambitions are different – you want to be a CEO.
Ok, do you run a division? No.
I see a pattern.
Do you have a good position in a good company? No…? Really?
How much is your dream to be a CEO helping you in your day to day life, if you’re not on the path to being one?
Wanting to be the CEO is no help to your daily work if you’re stuck in the mail room. None at all.
