One, SIFT. The supply of information in the digital age outpaces demand. He said “information and opinion are readily available but knowledge and discernment are in short supply.”
Two, READ. Jeff writes, “The simplest thing you can do to distinguish yourself is to become a voracious reader. This is simple but not easy.”
Three, LEARN CONTINUOUSLY. We cannot rely on our formal education (especially if it is undertaken at a government school) to provide us with all of the education we need in our lifetime. Learning is a lifelong endeavor.
Four, AVOID ARGUMENTS. Do not waste time arguing with people, especially people on social media.
Five, PROMOTE PEOPLE AS WELL AS IDEAS. Jeff reminds us that relationships will determine your success more than ideas. It is “who you know” not “what you know” right?
