Lessons So Far...

  • 11. You are your own story
    (But don't let anyone else tell it.)
  • 10. Expectations get in the way
    (When you feel entitled to something, then you're probably not)
  • 9. Build your successes into opportunities for change
    (Look for trends, attach yourself to them, and then innovate them.)
  • 8. Practice being slow
    (Ask yourself if you could go any slower, often.)
  • 7. Whether you know it or not, you're a risk manager
    (Do absolutely everything you can to 'stretch' and develop yourself.)
  • 6. Pay attention to landscapes
    (Understand the importance of place in your life and where you are at your best.)
  • 5. Travel Lightly
    (Bringing much 'baggage' with you doesn't help.)
  • 4. Listen to your elders
    (Lessons about life and business are everywhere, but you need to learn to listen for them.)
  • 3. Relationships Matter
    (The quality of your work is compounded through the quality of your relationships.)
  • 2. Know your strengths
    (But be absolutely clear of your limitations.)
  • 1. Understand your 'learning stance'
    (How will you keep from repeating mistakes?)
