Limitation Part 2

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:51 am

The Grasshopper had an addendum to yesterday’s post. When I heard it read aloud, he added, “Imitation is limitation.”

When we imitate someone, we are always one off from the original. It can be great entertainment but it’s rarely a satisfying substitute for the real thing.

Enter “Emulation.”

Emulation takes the best of what someone has to offer and allows you to adopt it and add your own style. Imitation makes you a poor man’s copy cat.

When I was in the radio business, most novice broadcasters imitated the person who influenced them to become a radio personality. As I’ve mentioned before, a wise program director once told me that I could never be the guy I was imitating, but that guy could never be me either. That’s the day I went from imitating to emulating.

When you adopt successful strategies and incorporate them with your personal style, you get to see the frame from which another operates and can then make decisions to go outside that box to create something new.

Learn the difference between imitation and emulation. It will make you a true original.

 

All the best,

John
