“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.” ~ Steve Jobs⁣

I first came across this quote a year ago and it’s been sitting in my “Ideas” Google Doc every since…⁣

The concept of an ENVIRONMENT OF EXCELLENCE haunts me. ⁣

Because rarely do we realize we’re operating in such an environment until it’s gone. ⁣And once it’s gone, all we do is regret the mistakes that lead to its demise.⁣

My friends, there is NOTHING and I mean nothing that compares to operating in an environment of excellence.⁣

Not salary.⁣
Not freedom.⁣
Not personal accolades.⁣

There are few things more motivating than being surrounded by individuals who demand your best work, not by words, but by their own actions.⁣

That is when you are the best version of yourself.⁣

Not for personal gain, but simply to see what you’re made of… to prove your metal… to be that thing your younger self believed you could be.⁣


Find one.⁣

Embrace it.⁣

Live there.⁣
