“No one-not rock stars, not professional athletes, not software billionaires, and not even geniuses-ever makes it alone” ― Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers: The Story of Success
We are a lot more like animals than robots. You cannot program a human apart from their relationships. You can’t drop a new chip in me and get me to do something. You’ve got to finesse my emotions, my relationships and my environment. As highly social creatures we deeply impact and affect each other.
Then why does it feel like I was taught to be so independent and individualistic to get to where I want to go?
I don’t know the answer to that, but I know this: We need each other.
