  • Be authentic. The most powerful asset you have is your individuality, what makes you unique. It’s time to stop listening to others on what you should do.
  • Work harder than anyone else and you will always benefit from the effort.
  • Get off the computer and connect with real people and culture. Life is visceral.
  • Constantly improve your craft. Make things with your hands. Innovation in thinking is not enough.
  • Travel as much as you can. It is a humbling and inspiring experience to learn just how much you don’t know.
  • Being original is still king, especially in this tech-driven, group-grope world.
  • Try not to work for stupid people or you’ll soon become one of them.
  • Instinct and intuition are all-powerful. Learn to trust them.
  • The Golden Rule actually works. Do good.
  • If all else fails, No. 2 is the greatest competitive advantage of any career.
