As I got older, I realized:

1 lost money can be found; lost time is lost forever

2 learning to learn, and changing yourself is a superpower

3 you are not your job

4 networking is about giving

5 best teacher is your last mistake

6 good manners as important as good education
As I got older, I realized:

7 do not take your health for granted

8 be a better friend and value relationships

9 if you are waiting for a title to lead, you are not ready to lead

10 a sponsor is more important than a mentor

11 a good story is soulful with sprinkling of data
As I got older, I realized:

12 stop worrying about what others think of you

13 if you want an easier life, work on harder problems

14 best teachers are life long students

15 imposter syndrome is real

16 fight against a sense of entitlement

17 half the battle is showing up
As I got older, I realized:

18 love and cherish your parents by giving them your time

19 success is not accidental

20 the best views are there for those who love the climb

21 lucky people work harder

22 takers may end up with more, but givers sleep better at night
As I got older, I realized:

23 memorizing is not learning

24 it is okay to look back, just don’t stare

25 knowing is not acting

26 straight roads do not make great drivers

27 good listeners hear the unsaid

28 be the person that you want to follow
As I got older, I realized:

29 do not limit your contribution to a job description

30 take care of your parents - the best gift that you can give yourself

31 customer service is not a department

32 in the long run, the optimists do more

33 never ruin an apology with excuses
You cannot go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. —CS Lewis
