Alan Stein, Jr. – Author of Sustain Your Game: High Performance Keys to Manage Stress, Avoid Stagnation, and Beat Burnout
I choose to use social media not from a consumption standpoint,
but from a production standpoint. I try and be a shining light, so
I create content to fill other people’s buckets. A candle loses
nothing by lighting another candle.
