Thinking That Everything Is About You

Many of us obsess over “rejections” and ruminate on what we could have done differently. It’s more productive to realize that every disappointment or poor interaction is not actually about us. 

Successful people realize that every little thing – bad or good – is not a reflection of them or their self-worth.

Smart people never assume they are the smartest people in the room.  That sort of assumption is really just contempt in disguise, and it leads to undervaluing and underestimating the others.

If you don’t take time to de-stress your brain, something’s going to snap, mentally or physically. Successful people internalize that reality and build time for de-stressing into their lives. 

The best way to know what works and what doesn’t, is to fail a few times.

Smart, well-rounded people do physical activities during their downtime – swimming, skiing, rock-climbing, tangoing – and they build them into their schedules. 

The fallout of not getting to the bottom of your stuff can affect not only your personal life but your professional life as well. 

Smart people know that having a fulfilling life means having a life outside of work. And they make time for it. Obsessively checking work email at the dinner table is a good recipe for disaster.
