Three Days In New York Can Change You For Ever

from The Way Home by Steve Lawson



Two things going on here - a tribute to New York as a city, a place I love and find completely unsustainable at the same time. Much like London. I can burn through money in New York like nowhere else on earth!

However, back at the beginning on 2014, I was invited to be part of a panel at the Microsoft Social Computing Symposium. It was fun to speak at, and I think I did a pretty good job, but the real magic was meeting a bunch of people who have become an indelible part of the fabric of my life and thinking. Brilliant, profound, wise, extraordinary friends whose advice, friendship, inspiration and wisdom are woven deep into who I am and what I’m up to. Along with a few other events that act in the same way, I can divide my life into pre- and post- MSC 2014. So this is for them, the amazing minds that I encountered there. thanks for the ongoing inspiration.

The lesson? Look for people who surprise and challenge you as well as encourage you to see your own life and work from a new angle. Cheerleaders are all well and good, but you need cheerleaders who are smarter than you, who will push you and not let you get away with thoughtless work. Find those people. You need them. I need them, they’re a lifeline. :)
