This week we're diving into how our lives are driven by network effects, how to be less bothered about things in life, and how you can build culture in a remote team. I'd really love to grow this newsletter in the last quarter of the year! If you could share it with a friend or invite them to subscribe at BrainPint.com, it would go a long way! Cheers, Janel
Your network shapes your life: the people you surround yourself with, what job you choose and the city you're in.
"In your first job, go work with people whose career path you want to emulate. Optimize for network.
The early professional relationships you form will have bigger influence on your skillset, your lifetime earning potential, and the mastery of your craft than the particulars of your job description, the income, the company perks, or the brand name on your resume."
Enjoy misadventures as side quests. Detours are part of the trip.
Leave more slack in all the systems. Budget more time, patience and possibility.
Distance yourself from emotional black holes. If someone, someplace, or some activity sets your teeth on edge, avoid it if possible.
