Things I Wish I Had Known When I Graduated


Recommended Posts

- If you don’t speak up, people will assume you’re happy with the way things are.

- If you don’t love yourself, nobody else will.

- If you wouldn’t want your mother to learn about it, don’t do it.

- Paying the minimum due on your credit cards is dumb.

- High school ISN’T the best time in your life.

- Never miss a chance to tell someone “thank you.”

- You’ll fall in love more than once – or at least think you have.

- Never assume that your employer (or your boss) is looking out for your best interests.

- You can be liked AND respected.

- Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers – aren’t.

- Hug your parents – often.

- Know at least a little about sports and the weather.

- “What do you think?” is a great response when you don’t know the answer.

- The hardest thing to do is quit while you’re ahead.

- The second hardest thing to do is to keep your mouth shut.

- Never assume that “senior management” knows what they’re doing.

- “Have you been working out?” is the best thing you can say to someone. The second best is, “Have you lost weight?”

- People notice people that don’t swear.

- Breaking up IS hard to do.

- Listen.

- Smile.

- Read.

- That 401(k) match is not “free” money – but it doesn’t cost you anything.

- Start saving for retirement – now!
