Kyle Petty’s dad (Richard Petty) once taught him a valuable life lesson: “A motorcycle will teach you to respect speed. When you outrun your talent, it will put your butt on the ground.”
Later on, Kyle learned a valuable business lesson: “When the model changes, you have to be flexible and change with it.”
Talent will only take you so far. If you’re not willing to change and adjust, you could be guilty of imposing your limits, not the organization.
Grateful for the amazing people I met at Nate Unite 2020 and of course for the opportunity to attend.
