Bernie's Driving Lesson

My friend Bernie Garcia told me a great lesson he learned one summer while working for his family as a driver.

Each day Bernie would drive around on the interstate all day from place to place. One day it dawned on Bernie that he had gotten better at driving on the interstate and this was obviously because he spent so much time doing it.

This driving around skill was not a skill that made Bernie happy and so he decided to make sure that, in the future, he spent time doing things that he would be happy getting better at like drawing or painting. He's really good at illustration now. Check out his stuff here.

This is a great lesson for all of us. What a shame to waste our time getting good at doing things that we don't like to do. So go find your passion and then follow it.
