Be unconventional

One of the ironies of growing up is that when you’re young, you’re supposed to fit in.

As you get older, to succeed, you need to stand out. That and so many other “unwritten” rules are not taught to our young people and so many miss out.

‘Rule of 6’ – 6 steps to save more money this Autumn [The Twenty Percent] – “The government has doubled down on its ‘rule of 6’ approach to social distancing.

Remember the golden rule – “don’t be a jerk.”

It doesn’t pay to be a jerk at work, research finds [CNN] – “When we’re young and preparing to enter the workforce, we’re trained to set aside our innocent, wide-eyed hope for the tough skills needed in a dog-eat-dog world. Sure, being assertive and developing a thick skin may serve you well, but adopting a mindset where you’re just out for yourself, it turns out, might be good for nothing.”
