How old are you?
One important way of measuring maturity is “age”. However, age is a generic nomenclature. The age many people are accustomed to is the “chronological age”, but I beg to differ in that general conclusion.
On your path to impact and greatness, you cannot do without responsibility and maturity. (..and these go beyond chronological age). To this end, we also have spirit age and mental age, to mention but a few.
Whenever you find yourself anywhere in life, you’ve got to keep asking yourself this question.
HOW OLD AM I?
“How old…” like I said earlier is not just about chronology. Have you ever been somewhere or done something and people though you were either too young or too old for such a thing? When people make those remarks its because they compare your chronological age with another measurement of age.
If you’re the first (wo)man to do something, to invent or discover something, then you pioneer the “age” of such phenomenon.
When you’re the best in a certain field, then you define the “age” of that field .
1. Take a look at your association (place of work, class, phone book, bbm contact, etc)
By definition of “age”, the most influential person becomes the “oldest” with the definition of “age”
2. Where do you fall on the list? What’s your level of influence or impact? To move up the ladder you must “age” (meaning you must learn to handle more responsibilities effectively and make more impact passionately)
3. Make sure you’re not the “oldest” within your association. It can slow your progress. Make sure you have people who keep challenging or motivating you to do better. (Get off the local champion mentality)
Greatness must be decisive and strategic.
