Michael Lazerow, LinkedIn Influencer and entrepreneur lists some advice he wishes he was given in school. I could easily quote the whole article, but I won’t. Here’s a sampling:
Play a sport. What you don’t learn in art class you’ll pick up on the field.
Doodle often. It’s your brain on auto drive. You never know where it will take you.
Admit your mistakes. Don’t lie. Take your punishment. And move on. The mistake won’t hurt you. The coverup will. Flawed, vulnerable people are likable. Liars aren’t.
Great stuff. Indeed, I think every child should be taught these at an early age. Simple lessons to hear, hard to practice, even harder to master.
