Don’t “Do The Things,” Be The Person Who Does The Things

Don’t “Do The Things,” Be The Person Who Does The Things

I’ve said this a million times (it seems) to myself and others. In this article:

The Munger Operating System: How to Live a Life That Really Works

I found a similar idea:

To get what you want, deserve what you want. Trust, success, and admiration are earned.

It’s such a simple idea. It’s the golden rule so to speak: You want to deliver to the world what you would buy if you were on the other end. There is no ethos, in my opinion, that is better for any lawyer or any other person to have. By and large the people who have this ethos win in life and they don’t win just money, not just honors. They win the respect, the deserved trust of the people they deal with, and there is huge pleasure in life to be obtained from getting deserved trust.

So many people are focused on what they see successful, well-loved, respected people doing, without understanding who they are being is what gets them the success, the love, and the respect.

Because if all you are doing is modeling behaviors, you’re missing the point.
