I love gurus.
The feeling of hope and promise of new efficiency, productivity and meaning that a good one brings.
The catch is how easy it is to end up chasing the feeling and not the ideas. Or to chase the ideas, and not the difference they might make. A weekly in-person meeting with your favourite guru would probably make you feel terrific, but it probably wouldn’t make a revolutionary difference to your project.
Focusing, making a good plan and putting in the hard yards – including the hard work of looking and thinking – and applying what you already know probably will.
Be your own guru.
