Ivy League Schools Have No Rank in the Global Village

  1. Learn valuable skills that are difficult. Be willing to invest in areas that are taboo, aren’t super sexy, time-consuming, strenuous, appear risky or are super technical or academic.
  2. Learn valuable skills with hidden benefits. Humans have value blind spots. They under-estimate skills with abstract, long-term payoffs; micro-skills; skills from other disciplines; and classic ideas that have been forgotten.
  3. Redefine value better than the consensus. In our careers, we use our skills to serve someone else. Regardless of social status, level of education, or economic background, every Resident of the Global Village is both a producer and a consumer. Whether they be a customer, a boss, a fan, a recruiter, or prospect, if you can better understand the unmet needs of the people you’re serving better than others, you will be able to meet those needs better. That will give you a competitive advantage that is not easy to emulate.
