A Book With A View
If you could go back in time to meet a younger version of yourself—say, the 25-year-old Jeff Yamaguchi—and had 30 seconds to tell him something that would help him with his career in the future, what would it be?
Yamaguchi: Probably the same advice I would give myself now, that I need to remember to adhere to [today]: Take chances, be creative, have fun with it, work hard, look for and try new ways of doing things. All those things sort of go hand-in-hand. It’s easy to say or give that advice and much harder to actually pull-off consistently, but I think the best work comes through when all those elements are in play. Oh … and learn how to sell. No matter what you are doing, you have to sell it.
