They say if you’re the smartest person in the room you’re in the wrong room.

Sometimes.

Not all the time.

Sometimes we should be in the room with smarter, more experienced people.

That’s how we learn and grow. That’s how we get better. That’s how we lift ourselves up.

Be selfish sometimes.

Sometimes we should be in the room with people we’re smarter than and more experienced than.

That’s a way of sharing, teaching, and giving back. That’s a way of passing along what we know and what we’ve learned. That’s a way of helping others and lifting others up.

Be selfless sometimes.

Be in multiple rooms. We’re not too good for anybody. We can learn something from everybody. We can make a difference in all rooms.
