5 Closest Friends = Your Future; Can’t Outperform Inner Circle

My wife Heejin and I are voracious consumers of podcasts and books of every type, and one message repeats over and over: “You will never outperform your inner circle; if you want to achieve more…improve your inner circle” (John Wooden).

A corollary is: Show me your five closest friends; I will show you your future.

Most people discount the very strong effect of casual relationships, especially those outside of work. They shouldn’t.

Who is in your inner circle?
