The Last Lecture - Lessons

I thought I'll place some of the lessons here in from the book The Last Lecture.  So I can remember them...

  1. Have something to bring to the table, because that will make you more welcome
  2. If you can find an opening, you can probably find a way to float through it.
  3. You've got to get the fundamentals down, because otherwise the fancy stuff is not going to work.
  4. When you're screwing up and nobody says anything toyou anymore, that means they've given up on you
  5. People are more important than things. 
  6. Complaining does not work as a strategy.  We all have finite time and energy.  Anytime spent whinning is unlikely to help us achieve our goals.  And it won't make us happier.
  7. It's not how hard you hit.  It's how hard you get hit.. and keep moving forward
  8. Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.  And experience is often the most valuable thing you have to offer.
  9. I still try to handwrite notes when it's important to do so.  It's just the nice thing to do.  And you never know what magic might happen after it arrives in someone's mailbox
  10. If you work more hours than somebody els, during those hours you learn more about your craft.  That can make you more efficient, more able, even happier.
  11. Sometimes  all you have to do is ask, and it can lead to all your dreams coming true.
  12. We cannot change the cards we are dealt with, just how we play the hand.
Proper apologies have 3 parts:
  1. What I did was wrong
  2. I feel badly that I hurt you
  3. How do I make this better
