This weekend my oldest daughter sat among the graduating class at LETU when Ray Davis, owner of the Texas Rangers, gave the commencement address. I may have been the only one in the crowd who pulled out my pen to capture ‘Big Ideas’ from Mr. Davis.
“Nothing replaces effort; make no mistake, you are in competition. Entitlement will not separate you from the pack. Preparation creates separation.”
His two step process for creating separation:

- Find a Mentor: Have more than one, you need more than one.
Two things I am already working on in 2015. What are your steps for creating separation and moving towards the Xtra Mile?
