My simple advice to my graduating students

One of my Masters students @Hultbiz asked me what advice I would offer as he takes his next step into the corporate world. Here is my advice below:

1. Define and follow productive daily routines to improve health, learning and relationships. @tferriss is a great resource 

2. Your next 5 years are 99% about learning. Make decisions with a bias towards learning more. Find great managers to learn from, seek out mentors, don’t be afraid to ask for help

3. Find a way to do for work what you’d do for free – passion is much more powerful and sustainable than necessity or greed 

4. Business is about people, not ideas or science. Listening to, learning from and reading about people pays big dividends. Every person on earth has strengths, insecurities and emotional needs. Understanding these is powerful
