Advice to my 21 year-old self

An intern invited me to coffee today and asked what advice I’d give my 21 year-old self.
The answer was easy: read more history and biography.
As the saying goes, “Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.”
The only shortcut I’ve found is to study other people’s experience, and that’s mostly written up in history and biography. You can’t read enough of it.
