Meshing and Mashing - Deliberately

I’d like to offer an interesting and game-changing “mental model” to add to your toolbox. It’s a model that combines the deliberate “meshing” of new interests into your life with the “mashing” of your current interests to put you on a path of accelerated personal and professional growth.
Meshing New Interests
Going to places you’ve never been before
Reading books on subjects unrelated to your field of expertise, including nonfiction and fiction
Talking to new people with varying and differing opinions
Hanging out with creators and innovators
Engaging in new experiences that take you out of your comfort zone
Mashing Current Interests
Spending quality social time with the people in your inner circle
Developing personal relationships with people you work with, including team members, clients, and vendors
Immersing yourself in the literature pertinent to your field of expertise … books, articles, magazines, and journals
Attending and listening to speeches, webinars, classes, etc.
Spending quality time thoroughly enjoying your current hobbies and interests
The deliberate attention to both meshing and mashing is where breakthroughs occur, growth accelerates and mastery is realized:
Meshing new interests into your existing interests
Mashing new interests and existing interests together to catalyze growth
What do you need to change or do differently to deliberately bring meshing and mashing into your life as you continue your personal journey to mastery and success?
