- Play it safe. Listen to that inner voice.
- Know your limitations. Don’t be afraid to pigeonhole yourself.
- Remind yourself: It’s just a job.
- Show you’re the smartest guy in the room. Make skepticism your middle name.
- Be the tough guy. Demand to see the data.
- Respect history. Always give the past the benefit of the doubt.
- Stop the madness before it can get started. Crush early-stage ideas with your business savvy.
- Been there, done that. Use experience as weapon.
- Keep your eyes closed. Your mind too.
- Assume there is no problem.
- Underestimate your customers.
- Be a mentor. Give sound advice to the people who work for you.
- Be suspicious of the “creatives” in your organization.
- When all else fails, act like a grown-up.
