Strong opinion: We don’t talk enough about friendship.

That’s why we over-value short meetings and under-value long conversations.

Conversation gets better with time, so spend more time with great friends.

10 hours. 10 days. 10 weeks.

Exponential benefits.

It’s simple.

The single best lifestyle change I’ve made this year is spending less time in short meetings and more time in extended conversation.

Louder laughs.

Stronger friendships.

Find your tribe. Then... team up and support each other.

This paragraph from @johnolilly is a 10/10.

Trusted friends magnify the shine of life.

In turbulent times, they smoothen the ride. And in moments of joy, they make the world a richer and more saturated place.
