Questions and Answers

  1. Be a team player—unless you are an artist or a writer, you will spend the majority of your career working in teams.
  2. Develop leadership qualities—being a leader entails three things: 1) you are able to understand a complex problem, 2) set a vision, and 3) mobilize people collectively to develop a solution.
  3. Intellectual curiosity—always be willing to learn (on a personal note, I think this advice is absolutely critical. I received the exact same advice from Walter Isaacson, the ex-Chairman of CNN & writer of Steve Jobs’s, Einstein’s, Benjamin Franklin’s, and Leonardo da Vinci’s biographies).
