More From My Interview With Robin Sharma on Why Changing the World Starts by Changing Ourselves

During our interview, I asked Robin why the minority of exceptional creative achievers operate under a completely different philosophy. And what is that philosophy?

The Everyday Hero Manifesto by Robin Sharma for the Passion Struck website recommended book list

Robin Sharma explains, “Well, there’s a lot of elements to the philosophy, but one part of it is OAD, obsessive attention to detail. So in the 5 AM Club, I used characters. It’s written in the form of a novel, as you know.

But there’s that example of deseeding, the lemon wedges. And that came from an experience that I had, I was working on a book in a hotel, and I ordered some lemon tea, as I love to drink when I’m writing. And the room service attendant brought in the tea. And I noticed the kitchen had cut a piece of lemon in half. But someone had taken the time to de-seed the lemon wedges so that they wouldn’t go into my tea cup. And that speaks to something very fundamental.

Too many people in the majority. What they do is they want the rewards of world-class, but they’re not doing what world-class requests. They mail it in. They don’t do their work with exquisite attention to detail to make everything beautiful.

Deseeding the lemon wedges is a great metaphor for what the top 5% do. Whatever they do, they do it with such care, such obsessiveness, such devotion to mastery. I think that’s really important. I love the word devotion. Yesterday, I went on a country walk. I’m working on a new book. So I’m here in the European countryside. And John, I came across the church, and the door of the church was open. So I thought I’d walk in, So I walked in, but no one was in there. And there was a nun at the front of the church, and she was playing this old wooden Oregon, and she was singing.

Now, I want to make this point. No one was in the church until I walked in there. But she was singing like there were 1000 people there. Wow. And I sat on. Yeah, and I sat on that pew. And tears came to my eyes. Because this is not about religion. It’s about devotion. And this woman, with no audience, was devoted to her mission. And so you ask, what are the top 5%? They are devoted. They are devoted to practicing. They are devoted to their vision of being world champions.

Great people in business are devoted to their craft. Great Human beings are devoted to their faith. They’re devoted to their family. They’re devoted to their habits. They’re devoted to getting up when they fall.

Thanks, Robin Sharma!
