Philip Guo’s Advice

Standard

I came across Philip Guo’s website, and found some fresh thoughts.

~

“The rare and gifted few who are truly at the top of their field (and command the most respect from me) have a zen-like calm and humility and aren’t afraid to ask the simplest of questions or to talk in a way that others might interpret as naive, because deep down they are absolutely confident in their abilities and limitations”

~

“The main purpose of education is to strengthen your mind so that you can perform better in the sport of life.”

~

“Only outsource tasks (e.g., programming jobs) that you confidently understand so that you can easily evaluate how good of a job your contractor did in completing your task; otherwise you might get screwed over with a crappy end-product and not know how or why it sucks.”
