YYesterday,  I have a friend who has been constantly listening to podcasts, reading e-books, and consuming loads of knowledge yet he hasn't been able to improve.

We fall into a syndrome called FOMO and this applies to all aspects in life.  It's also called the shiny object syndrome where we are told to keep adding tools in your tool belt.

It is difficult to talk to this friend as he keeps re-assuring me that he has learned and he's better than yesterday and he's more mindful and more present and the story goes on.   I'm constantly being sold that he is better than yesterday.  

However the results are the same.  He continues to consume mass amounts of knowledge and dips his toe into every subject of life without getting the results he needs.

The Magic of specialization is the key here instead of being the jack of all trades.  Choosing a strategy can be daunting because it means sacrificing all the other paths to potentially choose from, putting your one strategy in action, and potentially failing.  

What's the best strategy for personal growth? How do you teach it to others?

British billionaire Richard Branson, whose own space company, Virgin Galactic, is planning on conducting flights to suborbital space for ultra-wealthy thrill seekers and competing directly with Blue Origin. Branson has long said he would be among the first passengers aboard Virgin Galactic's rocket-powered plane, but that flight is expected to take place later in 2021.Blue Origin's flight crewed flight will see the company's six-seater capsule and 59-foot rocket tear toward the edge of space on a 11-minute flight that'll reach more than 60 miles above Earth.After six years of extensive and often secretive testing of the rocket and capsule, called New Shepard, Blue Origin announced in May that it was preparing to put the first passengers in a New Shepard capsule.
