    • 10 Things I Have Learned Maxims for Life and Business Kate Carruthers FITT Lunch, Sydney 28 June 2006
    • #1 Realise that your career is not your life
      • Keep up your relationships with family & friends, don’t neglect hobbies
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #2 Have a realistic self perception
      • Take the time to learn about your strengths & weaknesses
      • E.g. there is no use trying to be an accountant if you cannot add up
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #3 Be kind to yourself and to others
      • Kindness costs nothing and makes you feel better.
      • If a situation is already bad it doesn’t get any better when we are unkind to each other.
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #4 Have a roadmap of goals & steps to achieve them
      • Goals without plans are unlikely to be achieved.
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #5 Be flexible, always be ready to develop an alternate plan
      • As John Lennon said “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans”
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #6 Don’t take anything that happens at work personally
      • Most negative stuff that happens at work would happen to whoever sits in your chair.
      • Even if it is personal, refer to back to # 1.
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #7 Know your boundaries
      • Have a clear idea about what you want, what you are willing to give, and what you are willing to take.
      • Be willing to walk away if necessary.
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #8 Decisions are made by those who turn up
      • Participation is important!
      • And it is powerful when accompanied by enthusiasm and passion.
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #9 Apply yourself
      • Each day take a positive step towards your goal.
      • If you fail one day, get back to it the next day, this will get you there in the end.
      • Failure is really just practice.
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • #10 Don’t give up on something you care about without good reason.
      • Many people quote Winston Churchill in this regard, but they often fail to quote him in full.
      • It is worth reading the full quotation …
      Kate Carruthers, June 2006 10 Things I Have Learned
    • Churchill said:
      • “… this is the lesson: never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense .
      • Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
