Most people sort of just “fall in” to what they work on without much thinking
- Don’t be like most people – what you work on is worth the upfront thought!
How to pick who you work with 🤼
Be willing to move so you can be surrounded by like-minded individuals in your field.
To add: “Whenever I’ve helped people for no immediate benefit…. time and time again in my career, it’s later benefited me a lot” – Sam Altman

"Wrong location? Move it. Wrong people? Replace 'em. Wrong industry? I don't believe it. I've got a company in the machine tools industry, and we're doing great. I'd happily go into the coal business. It's how you look at something and how it's managed that makes the difference.” - Ken Hendricks
