The best advice I have ever received is so simple it is silly: invest in yourself.
I’m going to extend that advice to invest in yourself and your tribe.
In 2019, we should all invest in ourselves. We should read more books. We should drink more water. We should sleep more, worry less, and spend more time outdoors.
We should stop using social media and start using our two ears and one mouth. We should fight the good fight, stand up to bullies, and teach our children to do the same. We should see the best in people. We should take ourselves less seriously. We should volunteer our time and energy to those who need it.
We should choose the challenging over the comfortable. We should learn a new language and pick up a hard skill. We should recognize that there is unbounded beauty in the struggle.
And we should encourage our tribe — our family, our friends, our loved ones, our teammates, our neighbors, our future friends and colleagues — to do the same.
If we all invest in ourselves, 2019 will be a great year. Here’s to it.
