I am not the smartest guy in the world, although I have a few rules to live by that make me honestly successful.
The first plus most important rule is to surround myself with people smarter plus more successful than myself.
Some folks care about to feel care about the smartest person in the room, but not me. I want everyone around me to be smarter than I am, because then the two of us can learn from them. My roommate Gus is possibly the smartest person I’ve ever met, then he is socially awkward, but smart as a whip, so when he has advice, I tend to take it! Gus told me he wanted to use the attic for growing a few cannabis plants, plus asked if I would help him. Ordinarily I would be sad about growing cannabis at home, because of the legal issue, but Gus thought it was a fantastic idea so I agreed. The next few months were pretty intense, because much to my surprise growing cannabis plants was honestly difficult plus required a lot of time plus effort. Gus never does anything halfway, so he used the finest cannabis seeds, the nicest soil, plus the most nutrient-rich additives to supplement their growth. When it came time to harvest, Gus presented me with weed as tasty plus potent as anything I’ve ever gotten from the cannabis dispensary. The people I was with and I discussed selling the cannabis, but ultimately decided to keep it all plus split it between us. Thanks to Gus, I am smoking the best cannabis in the world, totally for free, for the next few months. By then hopefully it’s time for another harvest.
