Advice with Scars on It

I wrote this back in 2008:

  1. If something doesn't feel right, don't pretend that it is right.

  2. Be wary of wit at the expense of others. It has a habit of turning sour.

  3. There are times when one of the smartest things you can do is to lose an argument.

  4. One of the most dangerous moments in a meeting is when everyone agrees.

  5. There are no little slights.

  6. Don't set higher standards for your secretary than you do for your chief executive officer.

  7. There are people who are wrong at the top of their voice.

  8. Predators may be beautiful but they are still predators.

  9. It can be easier to take a group from the bottom to the top than to keep a group at the top.

  10. If you have no competition you'd be wise to invent some.

  11. Whenever you are being given too much detail, rest assured that it is being used as a cloak.

  12. Look, and keep looking, for new ways of looking.
