Leadership tips from a 20-year-old college kid

-Think different-

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. –Apple’s Think Different commercial, 1984


-Have a sense of humor-


-Communicate effectively-

{Lessons from Winnie the Pooh}

“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?’”

“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

  1. Annie,

    I really like your last Winnie the Pooh quote – who knew he could be so insightful!? I think it really speaks to the nature of proactivity and how important it is for leaders to actively pursue solutions to both life’s daily problems and opportunities.
