Alignment 2 Others

Learn by example too.

There are so many people who have been where you are right now (your path), and know how to get where you want to go (your destination).

Study them and their work. Learn from their mistakes and triumphs. Ask them questions if you can. Learn from the nuances of their actions.  

Align their methods with your own.

The shortest path to knowledge and wisdom is by learning from those that have come before.
