  • Love your craft, not your employer
  • Build relationships with individuals by putting them before the problem you are solving. Not everyone is going through the same phase of life as you are
  • Never give your first feedback to a person in a public forum - speak to them privately and convey your message very respectfully
  • Everyone is good at something - take time to understand how 1+1 can be made 11
  • If you think you are smart and will kick someone's a** today, soon someone else will put you at the other side of the table - Avoid this situation
  • Follow the money - Understand incentive structure for everyone involved
  • Be comfortable with silence - you should not feel compelled to fill it with garbage
  • Always ask - "Why Now?"
