Nº81 t(-_-t) Advice when most needed is least heeded 🗣️ 🙉
By Twotone Amsterdam • Issue #81 • View online
Learning the hard way & not listening when you should are common mistakes.
Whether its burning 10 million dollars in a startup or burning down your house trying to kill bees with fire. Before they even picked up the match, I bet people urged them to learn before they burned.
Seth Godin recently answered the following question quite well:
What advice do you have for people who are just beginning their careers?
1. What habits are going pay off in the long run? What patterns, instincts and rituals do the people you seek to emulate follow? Emergencies now become emergencies later.
2. What assets will you need? This begins with education, but it quickly becomes things like:
  • People in your rolodex who are eager to work with you.
  • Work experience that you encountered the hard way.
  • Resources, particularly cash, that will give you leverage later.
3. Who trusts you? What would happen if more people did?
He concludes with the notion that the scale doesn’t matter. No one is keeping score of who’s a millionaire by 26. It doesn’t matter. The process matters. What’s your process for ensuring you learn before you burn?
As always, thank you for reading!
with appreciation,
Jon
