E. Jean Carroll’s The Nine Rules for Reinventing Yourself
1. Don’t let your assumptions determine who you are.
2. Don’t waste time yearning for flawless bosses. Every day tell yourself that you will meet a dingbat, a jerkweed, a weakling, a chump, and a scoundrel. Be ready for them.
3. Don’t pay for a course from a so-called online university. Take free online classes offered by Harvard, Brown, Duke, Stanford, and others on Coursera.org & EDx.org.
4. Don’t crash industry cocktail parties. Meet a smarter bunch of people by crashing $5,000-a-plate lunches.
5. Run through museums. You’ll get great ideas faster.
6. Don’t jump out of an airplane unless you tape your ankles first.
7. Listen to your fantasies, not your dreams.
8. Don’t take up a new hobby unless it frightens you.
9. Don’t take a pole-dancing class. Just stare into the eyes of men on a subway for the same effect.
