Creating an Aspirational Environment
You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
One of my life goals is to be surrounded by interesting, positive people. In order to so, I put a lot of effort into cold-calling experts, following people I admire, and seeking new opportunities for collaborations.
I get energy from exploring unknown-unknowns (“unk-unks”) that don’t come with a rulebook. Rather than chase my own limited view of success, I would rather surround myself with happy, successful people.
Success to me would be enjoying my life while also having an impact on the world.
