In this episode of the Unmistakable Creativity Hour, we discuss how to implement the advice you get from books, podcasts, courses and coaches. The reason you can't copy and paste someone else's path to success is because in order to do so, you would need to overlook all unique variables and neglect the fact that prescriptive advice is context dependent. Context determines the effectiveness of all advice. For example, if you want to be a successful entrepreneur, you might look to Elon Musk as a role model. He is a great example of someone who has been able to achieve success by taking risks and being innovative. However, you also need to take into account the unique context in which he operates. Before modeling successful people you need to account for the variables that you simply can and can't replicate.
