Near the end of a self reflection by Jason Bateman on his career, he closes with a sincere thought on the importance of aligning and working with quality people. It caught my attention because I believe it applies to everyone irregardless of their industry.
“Staying employed is tough, success or relevance is paper thin. And you’ve got to try to align yourself with as many talented and kind people as you can because you need them.
This is not an individual game, it takes a team and so working with quality people on quality things is what I think fuels longevity. And if you want to stay in it for awhile, look for the good people.”
I am thankful for the good (quality) people I have had the fortune to know and work with over the last twenty years. And I look forward to working with more in the next twenty.
