1. There’s a difference between hard and uncomfortable decisions
    Most decisions are not hard — it’s actually very easy to know which is the right decision — but actually carrying out that decision is uncomfortable. The result is often a big delay that compounds whatever issue is up for solving. Make your decision and move on.
  2. You only get what you settle for.
    Whether it's the quality of team members, your compensation package, or organizational culture -- you are driving the train.
  3. Cultivate relationships, not contacts.
    It's not about having 700 contacts on LinkedIn. It's about making the time to build genuine relationships based on mutual respect and professional generosity.
