Bypassing 2FA, Active Directory Security, Building your strong circle! - Ritik Sahni

Hey, friend!
I hope you’re doing good :)
Let’s dive straight into the newsletter ✉️

How to find smart people? 🧠
On June 13, I responded to an interesting question on Twitter.
The question was very simple - How do we find people smarter than us?
My response to the question:
Ask these questions to yourself…
  1. Do you like listening to them?
  2. Do they share valuable knowledge that you care about?
  3. Do you think about the conversation for days after it’s over?
  4. If given a choice, would you spend time working with them?
Thinking about these simple questions and reflecting can really help you identify smart and strong people around you. Remember, it may take some time but always thrive to create a strong network. You may lose a lot of people in the process and may have to let go of some, but it’s a part of the entire thing - this is how you create your strong circle.

1. Wealth - Control over scarce and valuable resources.

2. Influence - Control over information, narratives & opinions.

3. Might - Control over violence, punishment and consequences.
