They’re not very good at playing small.
They’re not very good at giving up.
They’re not very good at allowing assumptions to guide their decisions.
They’re not very good at discussing petty gossip, even worse at spreading it.
They’re not very good at allowing Internet distractions or media sensations to steal them away from their most worthwhile goals and projects.
They’re terrible at insisting their way is the only way, and they suck at needing to prove they’re smarter.
Important because the more I hang out and interact with smarter people than me the more my awareness expands. The more I humble myself in the presence of smarter people than me, the more my level of consciousness rises. And the more I read smarter people than me, the more I realize how far I still need to go. Truth is, I just like jamming with better musicians than me…it makes me a better musician.
