“Stay in your lane and don’t change you.”  — Randy Jackson

That’s what Randy Jackson, musician, executive producer for MTV and American Idol judge, told Scotty McCreery when he asked for advice.  Scotty, American Idol’s seventeen year-old tenth season winner, considers this the best advice he received on the entire show.

It’s a simple statement.  Yet while simple, it\’s something we need to remind ourselves of often.

“Stay in your lane and don’t change you.”
