  • 3. 2. “Give it away” – Red Hot Chili Peppers Before you draw a paycheck, volunteer at something you love and commit to it for a year.

  • 4. 3. “Modern Love” – David Bowie The workforce you enter might just really have some open, different combinations of lovers. But remember, it’s the love that matters… and it should never be rationed4/23/2013 Confidential Information of Quake LLC 4
  • 5. 4. “Dance Naked” – John Cougar Mellencamp This isn’t about love (but it could be), but go ahead and read Froggatt’s Work Naked: Eight Essential Principles for Peak Performance in the Virtual Workplace.

  • 6. 5. “Stepping Razor” – Peter Tosh As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Rub up against people that sharpen (not dull) you.

  • 9. 8. “The World’s Greatest” – R. Kelly Be the best at something among all the people you know – small engine repair, changing the printer cartridge, cake decorations, fly fishing, nunchuku skills.

  • 10. 9. “No Woman, No Cry” - Fugees With the change of a single word, this becomes a hip lullaby. Get ready, kids are coming and don’t wait too long… it’s nice not to be thought of as your own kid’s grandparent.4/23/2013 Confidential Information of Quake LLC 10
  • 11. 10. “It’s so Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” – Boyz II Men So don’t… immediately sign up for your alumni club, and make sure to buy tickets at least once a year for your favorite ballgame, theater or music performance on campus.4/23/2013 Confidential Information of Quake LLC 11
