Influence what influences you

Note to myself on managing the influencers in your life

An old saying goes like this: Tell me who your friends are and I will tell who you are. It basically means that your closest circle of people define your frame of mind and your views on life. In 2020 this is also true with the “media diet” we are consuming. An updated saying could go something like that: Tell me what YouTube channels and Twitter accounts you are subscribed to and I will tell you who. This does not come as a surprise, I think. The content we are consuming and the things we are paying attention to, have a direct relationship with how we feel about our reality. I strongly believe that by managing our information inflow through our media consumption, we directly control who we become.
