wish I had known before I started my career

  • Making bad strategic decisions rarely hurt you for long. Choosing bad personal associations will hurt you for years.
  • Money can buy happiness. Save as much as you can.
  • Work harder, not smarter. Until you learn to work hard, “working smart” is pablum of the lazy.
  • You won’t be ready for the promotion. Take it anyway.
  • Never work for dumb people. Ever.
  • If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re the dumbest person in the room.
  • Learn the difference between earned success and survivorship bias.
  • You can’t find the line until you cross it. Once you cross it, never cross it again.
  • Privilege is real. If you have it, give some of it away. If you don’t have it, go take it.
  • If you’re perpetually embarrassed about who were ten years ago, good job, you’re becoming wise.
  • It is always better to act than to be acted upon.
  • You will never get everything done in a day. If you do, you aren’t thinking big enough.
  • Lastly , 99 % of us will find the most joy outside of our careers. Focus more on your life journey than your career journey. Everything else works itself out
