Surround yourself with people who have projects.
Avoid trolls and grey vampires. You cannot change them. No need to pity them with your company; they will find others. Life is short and your energy level is not infinite. Do not squander your energy on trolls and grey vampires. How to know who they are? Just pay close attention to your personal energy meter and see who makes it dip. Avoid those people.
