3 Rules to Live By for Every Graduate or Job Seeker

It’s that time of year when folks are giving speeches about their future, their direction, thinking about college starting in the fall, getting a job or just making a change. Throughout my career I have 3 rules that I try to live by. If any of this is helpful add this to your toolbelt of knowledge, if not disregard.

3 Rules to Live By

1. World is incredibly small place
You never know who you will work with or for, always be humble and foster each of your individual relationships whether that be work, social, family – you never know when one of those investments will pay off. This was how I was hired at Jobster [dead], Apex LearningRescueTime and Digital DNA Infusion.

2. Get a coach
You do not have to go through this life alone. Get a coach for each part of your life and don’t be afraid to change them up as you evolve and grow. Get a coach for technology, marketing, sales, personal development, spiritual, etc. Their advice is free, take what is helpful, remove what is not.

3. Every problem has a solution
Reciting this during difficult times always makes me feel better. I don’t know that the statement is true in all cases, but for the purposes of navigating my professional life I’ve always taken comfort in, “someone else has already solved this problem” and I study their approach before choosing a direction on my own.
I’m sure there are plenty of other rules to follow, but these 3 will get you started.

Fuck You Instagram - Thanks for ruining the last place I could go to for my own artful curated content of crap with your new advertising model. Instagram was my LOLCATS, it was my Dilbert, it's my morning routine, it was my friends and now it’s giant full size ads on my mobile device - exactly what I want to see on my break in between meetings, lunch, work, kids, etc.

Isn't it enough that you have our data and millions of users? Can't you guys at Facebook call Instagram a Museum and not touch a fucking thing?

Just one of millions.
