As I approach being “retired” for almost a year now I find it interesting that some of the biggest projects I am working on were not even my ideas!

The book, podcast, leadership presentations and a game changing collaboration with a couple other law enforcement power players, were not things I was focused on during this transition.

They all came from ideas and conversations with people I knew or have gotten to know over the last year.

I was surrounding myself with others that had vision, saw opportunities and value collaboration.

I was open to not having all the answers or ideas and looked to learn from those ahead of me on similar journeys.

My “Circle of 5” has changed over the year but this is proof of the influence it has on you and your life.

Is your circle pushing you forward, bringing creative ideas to the table and helping you live life to its fullest potential?

If not, you can always find a new circle!
