You'll never outperform your inner circle

You’ll never outperform your inner circle.
— Legendary Basketball Coach John Wooden

Divide a sheet of paper into three columns, one for each of your main social circles: personal, professional, and a social organization.

In each, list the names of the five people you are closest to within those circles.

Then, look at the paper and ask yourself:

  • Are they going where you're going?

  • Are they the kind of people you want on your journey to that place?

"If they're not, you need to scratch them from the list and create a new circle."
