Survivor fans might remember WWMD – “What would Monica do?” – from Season 34 Game Changers. Brad Culpepper often reflected on what his wife Monica would do in a given situation. He considered Monica his hero as she had made it to the final tribal council on an earlier season. This introspection seemed to work as Brad also made it to the final tribal council.
Recently I wrote to a trusted colleague describing the help I want from her as “What would Alison do?” After all, Alison Knott is an expert at branding and that’s exactly the kind of help I was writing to her about.
There are other heroes in my life – business and personal – whose advice I call upon often without their knowledge… by thinking, “What would *my hero* do?” I’m so fortunate to know and love them, to appreciate their expertise and learn from it.
Do your heroes guide your daily business activities? Do they shape your decision-making without even knowing? Now might be a good time to reach out and thank them.
