May the bridges I burn light the way. This is a powerful quote. I don’t advocate burning bridges just to burn them, but sometimes it’s best to cut all ties. Tactically burn bridges and use them as learning experiences for future endeavors.
Be picky about who you keep around you. Personalities do rub off naturally: i don't have an image to uphold, but at the same time i know who and what i want, so if you conflict with that, we won't work.
