Be Obsessed!

That's the difference between people who think and people achieve.

People who are obsessed about something mostly end up doing incredible things. People join them because they feel a sense of awe. There is a certain amount of magnetism about their working style. It attracts success and hardworking people. 

The first thing to do is find something you want to obsess about. It is not a high stakes decision. You don't have to make it your life's purpose. It can be for a specific period of time. It can be till certain goals are achieved. 

I am a huge fan of Elon Musk only because of how incredibly obsessed he is about the work he does. I think he is the epitome of 'whatever it takes'. He has what people in management circle's call 'Drive'. It is an amazing thing to have.

Think about that one person whose name comes to mind when you hear the words "She/He is so driven". Now think about their actions towards the things they are driven about. How different are they from that of an 'average' person? How much more is this person able to accomplish than an 'average' person?  How much more likely are you to work with this person than you are with any other 'average' person? 

Wouldn't you want to be this driven person?

Find your obsession and chase it like your life depended on it.
