Summary Before Odom landed the role Aaron Burr in the Broadway musical Hamilton, he put in years of hard work as a singer and an actor. Now he asks the questions that will help you unlock your true potential and achieve your goals even when they seem impossible. What work did you put in today that will help you improve tomorrow? How do you surround yourself with people who will care about your dreams as much as you do? How do you know when to play it safe and when to risk it all for something bigger and better? Whether you're graduating from college, starting a new job, or just looking to live each day to the fullest, knowing the answers will empower you for the greatness that lies ahead.
