“All I ask is one thing, and I’m asking this particularly of young people: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism. For the record, it’s my least favorite quality, and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get.
― Conan O'Brien
But, if you work really hard, and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.”
This is one of those quotes that went beyond an inspirational platitude to the career advice I needed. There is a business side of me, where I know that, like, 90% of my work is going to be "networking". I can't use people though- I care about them too much. It's just my nature. Like, I would rather cut my own throat than be "cut throat".
It's always been my dream to go on Conan, ask to borrow a shirt, then giggle at how long it is on me.
