- Imposter syndrome is a good thing – 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
- Don’t be afraid to take a pay cut for the right experience – There’s just nothing to me so invaluable in my business, but in many businesses, as great mentors. And a lot of kids are just too short-sighted in terms of going for the short-term money instead of preparing themselves for the longer term.” — Stanley Druckenmiller
- What got you to level one won’t get you to level two – In the beginning of your career, your technical skills matter the most. You get tested on how well you can use excel, or write code, or design products, etc. But as time goes on, those technical skills start to matter less. How you interact with people starts to matter a lot more.
