Changes & Confidence
Confidence comes from being in the company of those you admire. Ask yourself today, "Whose confidence are you helping to build? "Whose company are you keeping to bolster your own confidence?" People who fiercely believe in us encourage us to push on.
How to do great work
In the same vein, if you want to do great work, surround yourself with people who are making magic happen. By spending time around them, you can’t help but develop the same traits.

Prevent yourself from making mistakes by understanding what leads you to make them. Some stand-outs:

- Over-extrapolation of past successes leads to overconfidence, stubbornness, and a narrow view of future risks
- Tribal loyalty
