Seven Things I’ve learned, in my life. Because there weren’t 10 things I wanted to write about. BOOM.
Got to an interview early today. I got there and the guy emailed me that he was going to be 20 minutes late. I hate that. So I walked home and was inspired to write this list. If you’re under 30 maybe these things will be useful to you. If you’re over 30, hopefully you know them already.
- Always get to important meetings and job interviews 15 minutes early. It’s a psychological thing. It puts you in control.
- Always do what you say you’re going to do, even if it sucks. Then next time you won’t commit to things that suck.
- Don’t blame other people for why something went wrong.
- Accept other people, their shortcomings, their limitations as they are. If you really can’t stand them, you should stop hanging out with them. Or, if it’s a work situation, find a way to migrate them out of your organization, or find a different place to work. Sometimes getting along with people is important, but sometimes you have to trust your gut and go where the love is.
- Your friends should inspire and motivate you, not drain, depress, or leech off of you.
- Go to college, education is awesome.
- If you want to do something that someone else is doing, ask them how they did it, or if you can help them out (for free). I’ve done this so many times. One time I asked a friend if I could help with his Social Media campaign and he had me hit up, one by one, artists online, each with a personalized email asking if they would donate art to be a part of our campaign. I was stunned by how time consuming this process was, and also with how effective it was. The amount of people who responded was relatively small, but their participation and subsequently their impact was HUGE! Because they cared. I learned a valuable lesson about Social Media - that it takes face-to-face interactions and real foot work to make it a success.
