After you accomplish anything professionally, get online and write about it. Help someone who was once in your shoes trying to figure things out.
The bigger the audience you have, the more people will take you seriously.
The real education begins after college. Everything you’ve learned in class is largely worthless in the real world.
Successful people read books and research papers, listen to podcasts, go to conferences and talk to other people who are doing big things. That’s how they’re able to “connect the dots” between seemingly unrelated subjects and use that insight to land more opportunities.
In the beginning of your career, your technical skills matter the most. But as time goes on, those technical skills start to matter less. How you interact with people starts to matter a lot more.
Figure out what your company needs, and give it to them.
... is entirely predicated on what you’ve been exposed to. There are so many things in life you take for granted that someone else would think is crazy and unrealistic.
Work alongside the best in your field, read their books, listen to their interviews, study what they did to get where they are — and eventually, those crazy unrealistic dreams will become realistic for you.
Apart from jobs in academic professions, like medicine or law, job requirements are largely negotiable — you just have to prove that you can bring value to the table.
People who aren’t willing to “break the rules” a little bit usually end up wasting years of time and money trying to achieve a goal they could have achieved with a lot less.
Embrace that feeling of inadequacy.
The combination of believing that you can get to almost wherever you want to be, having discipline, and having insecurity about where you are is the formula for a successful, impactful career.
Surrounding yourself with the right people could lead to more opportunities than any company could ever give you.
Not only will you learn a ridiculous amount just by being around successful people in your field, you’ll also get into their “inner circle” if you can prove that you’re legit.
Don’t pick a career based on “average salaries” or employment numbers. When you’re striving to be great at what you do, the “averages” don’t matter.
When it comes to any field, the people who strive to be great have more than enough money and success. And everyone else fights over scraps.
No one gets extraordinary opportunities by taking the same approach everyone else takes.
The name of the game is noticing the ‘unspoken rules’ around you, and giving people what they want before they have to ask you. That’s how you win.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
