Who do you admire? I started to make a list of the people that I admire. Not historical figure or celebrities, but people I know personally. It was interesting for me to see who came up—and who didn't. I thought about the differences between people I like, sometimes a lot, but that I don't necessarily admire, and those that I do. I'll spare you my personal analysis, but I recommend the exercise. I think recognizing consciously who you admire can help you be more like the you you admire more of the time.
