I’ve been pretty busy lately - work, travel for work, moving to a new apartment, meetings, maybe a few beers with buddies, too - and I really felt like it was going to catch up with me yesterday after we moved into our new office and I settled down at my desk or sat in a long meeting .
But to my surprise, I have been entirely energized without stop and I think I figured it out…
It’s not coffee. It’s not Red Bull.
It’s people… High. Energy. People.
Today was the same. I didn’t sleep much or anything, but man oh man, I was just on the move all day - meeting awesome new people, catching up with some old contacts - connecting with startup people left and right and I swear every handshake is like a shot of adrenaline for me.
We may all work online, but at the end of the day, business is about people and the kinetic energy in the air around the best ones makes life a lot of fun.
I’m super lucky. Gotta love it.
