16 Things...

Usually I'm not a fan of lists like this as they tend to be way too wishy washy or obvious but I was pretty impressed with this one: "16 Things I Wish They Had Taught Me in School". A few highlights:

  • 2. Parkinson’s Law. You can do things quicker than you think.
  • 4. First, give value. Then, get value. Not the other way around.
  • 8. Assume rapport. Meeting new people is fun. But it can also induce nervousness. [...] This means that you simply pretend that you are meeting one of your best friends.
  • 13. 80-90% of what you fear will happen never really come into reality.
  • 15. Write everything down.
