One thing that college graduates should do is take chances. A fast failure can be better than mediocrity that goes on for a long time, because it’s easier to learn from failure, and then improve. It’s also important to stay true to yourself, because it can make you more effective in your efforts. People should also remember how important networking is – and if you have an opportunity to meet more senior employees, you should take it.
- When trying to get a new product developed, quick failure is better than mediocrity that hangs on.
- Failure allows you to reevaluate and adjust, and make improvements to your product.
- Meeting senior people is a good opportunity, and it is a good idea for people to take that opportunity.
