Similar to the points above, the quality of life you have (and the quality of the work you do) is based on who you spend your life with.
“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”
“If you’re interested, you come up with stories, excuses, reasons, and circumstances about why you can’t or why you won’t. If you’re committed, those go out the window. You just do whatever it takes.”
