The Manual #36 - Not about being the smartest
Seems like you guys love the quick thoughts and learnings format so I wanted to continue that.
Easy to be a victim. Better to be someone who doesn’t care anyway.
Sometimes to succeed you have to be willing to be low status. It’s much more rewarding at the end too.
