Have you ever been in a situation where a life lesson dawned upon you and you were like "why didn't someone tell me this earlier?"
We've all been there, here's a cheeky list of things I was not told as a kid - lessons I stumbled upon or figured out on my own
1) Life is not easy
2) People are complicated.
3) Doing things for yourself sustains you, doing things for others fulfils you
4) Never tell the interviewer your current salary
5) How to spot and avoid white elephant projects
6) Daily writing is as important as learning math & english. Even if it's journaling. Just write every day
7) Most, if not, all tools in life are amoral. Whatever you use them to achieve reveals you.
8) Forgive people in advance.
9) Why you do what you do is more important than what you do
10) Love the process
11) Keep your childish curiosity, never lose it
12) The reward of hard is more work
13) The joy is in the journey not necessarily the destination
14) Most things in life are games - making money, competitions or sports, moving up the career ladder - play the games to your strength.
15) Everything is contextual
Yeah, I'd love to see your list. ;)
