Just wanted to share a bit of what has been on my mind over the last few weeks. I've been thinking a great deal about the subject of peer pressure. And frankly, some of this might actually stem from a dinner discussion we had the other night with the parents on newly-minted teenagers - and the struggles that that can clearly bring.
But, I'm not a teenager. Frankly, I barely even remember those awkward years of the early youth. I'm an almost 50 year-old man running a design business . . . so you might wonder what manner of peer pressure I could be under.
You see . . . what I've done is try to surround myself with amazing people. Smart people. Successful people. People like this. And this. And these people. And this. And this. And this. And THAT is what keeps me moving forward. Don't get me wrong - I've always been super ambitious. But, I also know that keeping company with other successful, ambitious folks keeps me from resting on my laurels too long.
