Prioritize Quality Friendships

You need someone to talk to.

Someone who will listen, really listen to you and your ideas.

Someone who will be there for you when you fall.

Someone willing to help you, vouch for you and push you higher.

It doesn’t have to be 100 people. Or 100 thousand followers.

It just needs to be a few.

Find those few quality friends and prioritize them.

A few circles of friends rooting for you to win (and vise versa).

There are some people I know I wish I could talk to more, but they would want me to be more like them and less like me.

Good or bad, friends fade with the phases of life, but the type of people you surround yourself with will always determine the kind of person you are.

Our goal is to surround ourselves with incredible people pursuing their own great thing(s). You could be really into web development and be friends with someone really into major league baseball. Or love photography and be friends with an entrepreneur. The glue to any relationship is the willingness to fight for it and keep it going. And the shared pursuit of virtue and mastery brings out high-quality friendships.

When you surround yourself with greatness, you want to strive to be great. Build a community to push each other forward, working in camaraderie towards excellence.

The moment you start looking for your few, they will randomly pop up one day out of the woodwork. And when you find those few (in due time) cherish them.

Hold them close. Be the kind of friend that they need, because they need you too.
