Write down everything you learn from everyone. If you do this, you’ll have your own set of operating principles, a book of personal wisdom what will serve as a compass for your life.

If you’re in between jobs, or facing graduation with an uncertain future, what I would say is that you have a blank canvas. This is a wonderful thing because it’s an opportunity to create the life you truly want. So write down what your ideal life would look like. Write down something so daring, bold, and audacious that it motivates you to wake up every morning. I wish I’d known that a blank canvas is an opportunity to turn your life into a masterpiece.
