The book Good to Great, by Jim Collins illuminates us on the need of having best friends in life to make our lives a better and fulfilling place.
“For no matter what we achieve, if we don’t spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect, we cannot possibly have a great life. But if we spend the vast majority of our time with people we love and respect – people we really enjoy being on the bus with and who will never disappoint us – then we will almost certainly have a great life, no matter where the bus goes. The people we interviewed from the good-to-great companies clearly loved what they did, largely because they loved who they did it with.”Adopted from Jim Collins’s book Good to Great
This is precisely the reason as to why great organizations like Apple, Microsoft have been co-founded by the best of friends.
