The Quiet Power of Peer Pressure

RAISE YOUR AWARENESS ON THE ROLE OF PEER PRESSURE

The video at the end of this email caught fire on Twitter last week. To reward you Daily Discipline readers I’m expanding on it here this week . . .

The topic is the power of peer pressure.

First, you and I are not immune to peer pressure. It doesn’t matter your age, experience, or what group you belong to. Believing you’re above peer pressure only blinds you to how much it drives behavior. Group dynamics don’t decrease as we progress in our careers, they increase. In emotions, complexity, and consequences.

Second, peer pressure always pulls you in one of two directions: it propels you forward or it pulls you back. It’s never neutral. Keeping it simple and true accelerates your awareness of how social scenarios affect you.

More on that tomorrow.

Embrace the chase. Do the work.
