What have I learned...

- Always plan assuming that it would change sometime soon. Still plan.
- Understand risk management. Many people claim to understand risk, but that is not true.
- Identify your blind spots (thought process). This will take years and a mentor to do it right.
- Hope for the best. At the same time be prepared for the worst. This is not easy to do both of these at the same time.
- Learn to learn from what people *did*, not what from they *think*. (Even if they have failed.)
-- Opinions are just opinions.
-- Strategy is also just a strategy until it's executed (even if you fail).
- Execute quickly...and if you have to, *fail early*. Or *Pivot* into new strategy before you start hearing about it from outside.
- Don't paint everyone with the same brush. Context/perspective is the key to understand the world around you.
