Weekly Reflection: Week One Hundred Four

Today marks the end of my one-hundred-fourth week of working from home (mostly). Here are my takeaways from week one hundred four:

  • New Orleans Entrepreneur Week – I spent part of the week at this event. It exceeded my expectations. I had no idea the city had $2 billion in exits last year. Those exits, along with other traction, have created massive momentum that will lead to great things.
  • Common threads – This week reinforced how commonalities help us forge deeper connections with people. They’re powerful as we build relationships and work to understand who people really are (as opposed to how they want to be perceived).
  • Proximity to success Being around other people who are doing great things can have a powerful impact. You may become aware of a path you didn’t know about. Your beliefs about what’s possible expand. When you see that one person has done something, you will begin to believe it can be done, and that you can do it.

Week one hundred four was full of activity. I learned a lot and connected with many great people.
