1. Only work with people you like

2. Change is the only constant — how you react to it is what matters

3. People choose nice over smart

4. Don’t be afraid to say no

5. Take risks early in your career — it will be harder later

6. Be clear on what drives you and don’t compromise your values — you don’t have to

7. Find supportive mentors

8. Maintain your interests outside of work

9. Define your own metrics for success — don’t be driven by other people’s

10. It’s ok if you don’t want a traditional ‘career’
