Key Takeaways

  • Stick to one coherent idea, but acknowledge the other side of it. Bring your unique perspective into what you’re writing.

  • Many times we hold our ideas so precious that any comment about it feels like an attack. You need to be willing to let your ideas be looked at with an analytical point of view.

  • If you have an idea, you should share it. Rather than focus on trying to be successful or how to win, you should focus on trying to help people with your concepts and learnings.

  • Learning about the frailty of the human body can make you feel fearful of danger but also it can teach you that living is a precious thing that you wouldn’t want to take for granted.
