Make an inventory of your circle.

I am not talking about your 360 degree organisational relationship, your alumni, your neighbours, your club, your family or your friends.

The circle I mean are the people you frequently engage. Pick the top 5. Who do you see? What are their values? Where are the heading? What do they create? What do they complain about?

Like it or not, they are slowly shaping you.

You have the power to decide who you frequently engage.

The Internet makes it easier. For example, on a daily basis, some of the people I frequently engage are Seth Godin, through his newsletters, and Paul Graham, through his twitter feed.

Be deliberate about who shapes you.
