"Most will say you're crazy to try. Find those who say you'd be crazy not to."

Being in the Right Place
Every year I dedicate at least a few weekends and a few thousand dollars to being in the right place.
To attending events with people who see the world in a similar way.
In a world where most people encourage complacency, we need a sanctuary where people understand why all of us interested in living meaningful lives, do what we do. I go to belong. To be inspired. To find ideas I'd never discover on my own. To find people who hold me to a higher standard.
Because in that environment, magic happens.
There is no more powerful component to doing work that matters, to making a difference and to Living Your Legend, than putting yourself around the right people. It also happens to be the #1 ingredient to connecting with anyone
Last weekend was a perfect example. Chris Guillebeau hosted 1,000 people in Portland at his second annual World Domination Summit
For a weekend 1,000 of us got to feel at home.
