I recently got back from a road trip with a friend that’s in my Covid bubble. We were gone for 5 days and camped so we were away from others. We did a lot of driving and did amazing hikes every day. It was a very active trip.
I got home on Friday and on Saturday morning I had my weekly check-in call with my Northern California GoBundance group. This group has an amazing amount of accountability around the 6 pillars of your life (very similar to the six areas we look at in the Goals That Matter process). This is a weekly call for 1 ½ hours where we all check in with our accountability and then discuss any issues/problems/opportunities that we may need help with.
My “Whys” are Passion, Adventure & Sharing.
On a vacation week, I got to do all three of them. I usually like to stay at a really nice hotel but in the time of Covid, I wasn’t willing to do that. I wanted the adventure though and my buddy was up for it. He planned the trip and the hikes. I got to have adventure and sharing with him. I got to pursue one of my passions which is travel.
On my Saturday morning call, I was accountable for having done my final review on the GTM book before sending it to the person doing the layout for the upcoming book.
In reflecting on the week, it hit me again just how important the people we surround ourselves with is to the success of our lives and our goals. I had an amazing week of vacation. Then I came back to an amazing group of people that help me be better and achieve more. What more could I ask for from a group of friends?
And that’s the point of this article. Who you spend time with matters. They can help push you forward and meet your dreams and goals. It’s the adage that you’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.
Who are you spending your time with?
