Behind every extraordinary person is an extraordinary team.
If you want to make real impact in the world, you can’t do it alone.
I would not be where I am today if it weren’t for the many people who helped me on my journey:
Teachers, coaches, friends, family, mentors, therapists, advisors, colleagues, and others.
I even include my barbers, dentists, doctors, accountants, lawyers. The people who are devoted to a given area of human concern, and are committed to excellence in their domain of concern.
It is about leverage. Our ability to engage in reciprocal relationships with other professionals and benefit from their lifetime of dedication to a craft or area of knowledge.
Professionals work with other professionals.
Extraordinary people work with other extraordinary people.
When we’re down at the bottom of the ravine, we need trusted others to be calling up from above, encouraging us and helping to show us the way.
Whatever you are up to in the world, the better your team, the greater impact you can have.
