Intro
Some (sometimes overlooked)
differences between school and work
Additional advice
Where the money flows
“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get”
Motivation
“It’s not our abilities that show what we truly are…it is our choices”
What vs. How
“The journey not the arrival matters”
Communication
“The single biggest problem with communication
is the illusion that it has taken place”
Assessment
“I'm sorry, if you were right, I'd agree with you”
Information
“When you control the mail, you control information”
Directions
“Do or do not, there is no try”
Location
“The only thing that you absolutely have to know,
is the location of the library”
My $0.02
Marathon vs. Sprint
