You are only as good as the stuff you surround yourself with. It is as true with people as it is with things. You are a mashup of the things you allow into your life. If you want to be happy. Hang with people who support you and make you happy. If you want to be creative. Study creative works. Great athletes study other great athletes. Great musicians copy other great musicians. Learn from your heroes. Copy them. Nothing comes from nowhere.
Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard. --Colin Powell

There are plenty of people telling you what you should be doing. There is only one person who can tell you what you want to do.


One way to find out what you want in life is to find out what you don't want. How do you do that? Trial and error. Try things. If they don't work, try something else. You have the right to change your mind. Remember however that somewhere there is a clock. And it's running. Between the past and the future there is the present. Whispering… "Right now."

This week we hear from Steve Shlansky - founder of Go! Productions - who tells his story of finding out what makes him happy. Here's the link: Steve Shlansky: The Circuitous Route.
