      The bit in work is quite smart - #4. Work hard and even if you miss you’ll likely land somewhere pretty good.

      Being intentional about your growth is the best thing you can do for yourself.

      Have clear goals for yourself every day, every year, and every decade.

      Minimize your own cognitive load from distracting things that don’t really matter. It’s hard to overstate how important this is, and how bad most people are at it. Get rid of distractions in your life. Develop very strong ways to avoid letting crap you don’t like doing pile up and take your mental cycles, especially in your work life.
