Most of us get our information from a variety of sources. It’s sensible, especially given world events and the relentless news cycle. Skepticism is healthy, even necessary.

But when it comes to gurus, experts, or coaches, you can’t ride two horses to the finish line. You’ve got to choose.

This doesn’t mean you can’t read books by different authors, listen to different podcasts, or take different courses. But what you learn and discover needs to be filtered through a singular source.

The Bible wisely states no one can serve two masters. If you were brought up with Biblical traditions, you likely take this to mean you cannot serve God and another god.

But what I hear in “No one can serve two masters” is that you can’t have more than one intention at a given time. Too many intentions inevitably serve as counter intentions, canceling out each other. What I also hear in that is that you can’t have more than one focus at a time. You must know what you’re working towards and give your attention to only that.

Similarly, when you’re serving two masters, you end up giving too much attention to contradictory information instead of acting on the information you were already given.

Surrender to your master. Trust that you will learn everything you need to learn through them. That’s where the juice is.
