Richard Branson said,
“You need fewer of those people who zap energy and you need more of the kind who help you stay on track–true friends who help you find joy and meaning.”
When you surround yourself with people better than you, they inspire you to do better yourself.
As a writer, it is critical to have a network of people that you can draw on. A friend who’s always asking you about your writing progress. Or, a writing pal that you call rely on to buckle down and spend an afternoon writing at a coffee shop.
