You’ve heard the adage that you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
While that’s true, I’ve spent a lot of my adult life accumulating friends that while I don’t spend the majority of my time around them, I’d consider “life muses”. They are friends who are accomplished, interesting, and like me, are fucking busy.
But every time we meet, I come away with ideas and I also share ideas. We both come away with new perspectives that allow us each to be better life hackers. Having a variety of friends who fit into this bucket is one of the most rewarding parts of my life.
