Things I wish I knew

At 12

That life is largely about preparation

That knowing what you want is very important

That relationships are most important

That details matter

At 16

The 80/20 rule

That means determine ends

That control is an illusion

That purpose is to be discovered, not decided

That the world is not binary; only our language is.

That Success requires a willingness to fail.

At 21

That happiness depends on challenge

That reputation is paramount

That context is everything

That intuition is trainable

That the map is not the territory
