If we want to get good at this thing we do, we need to work with people that are as good, if not better than us.

What if we aren’t in a place where everyone is better than or even as good us?

Our job is to help our partners get as good if not better than us so we can get better. There is an old saying that a rising tide raises all ships. Sometimes we’re the tide. We add the water that raises everyone around us.

We can spend a lot of time searching for something better or we can make what we have better. Both approaches work. No one says you can’t do both at the same time. One approach builds you. One approach builds your community/tribe.
