What we’re thinking about…

Renowned businessman Jim Rohn once said, “You’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Our way of thinking, our self-esteem, and our decisions may be impacted more by our environment than we think.

So, if you’re hoping to elevate your performance and your thinking this year, the people around you matter. Try writing down your five, and rating them by their level of positive influence. If you discover you’d like your average to be higher, be open to change: look outside your company; meet new people at events.
