It just leaves me even more wrapped up in my own problems and worries. It’s far faster, more effective, and more enjoyable to focus outward on changing my environment.

My personal growth really took off when I started to surround myself with the peers, mentors, and experiences that I knew would bring the best out of me and lead me inevitably toward the person I want to be.*’ — Tiago Forte
