Learn from everyone; copy no one.  ~ Don Shula

Every day we see all kinds of things that others do differently from us. Sometimes, we are tempted to do or say the same thing, and we often find that it just didn’t work for us like it worked for that other person. Don Shula, who coached the Miami Dolphins through a “perfect” season, makes sense in his quote. Learning makes more sense for us when we take the time to understand and apply that new knowledge to what we already know or to our lives in a way that fits with us. You will always be you, and that’s what people like about you. Trying to be or act like someone else seldom succeeds. So, observe well; think; and, when it can work for you, do it in your own way.
