Was chatting with @jiteshluthra last Sunday and he shared some of his notes from @bgurley's commencement speech at McCombs MBA school.

Remember watching it earlier but sharing with you all with some edits/commentary, sure that a bunch of ya'll will find it useful👇

• Pick a profession w deep personal interest. Everyone has the will to win, people just don’t have the will to practice

• Hone your craft constantly - study history. Know the pioneers. Can’t always be the smartest or the brightest - but you can be the most knowledgable

• Go where the epicenter is. Just more networking available if that’s where the great people are.

• Develop mentors in your field. Obsessively learn from them. Get them interested in your own development. Share feedback on how you applied what they told you.

• Embrace peers in your field - it’s about connecting with people that you have the most overlap with - because you’ll be able to help each other along the way, along the journey. Always share best practices, the ecosystem grows as you will.

• Twitter > LinkedIn for networking.

• Always give the majority of credit to the other people who helped you up along the way.

• Lastly, you’ve got to pay it all back. That’s when you become a mentor.

• Bunch of interesting stories about Bob Dylan, Bobby Knight (famous basketball coach), Daniel Meyer (legendary restauranteur) and Katrina Lake (Founder of Stitch Fix)

Do check out the whole video and @JamesClear's notes as well, here👇…
