Up and To the Right!
1. Life is not black and white
2. Actions and words speak equally loud
3. Everything can be viewed as a 2×2
Life is not black and white: Your place in the world should be observed relative to others. You might consider yourself as “smart” or “rich” or “ugly” or “pious”, but you are not — at least not compared to someone else.
Actions and words speak equally loud: You can no longer get ahead on merit alone. Where you stand in life is now determined as much by what you say as what you accomplish.
Life is a 2×2: Each facet of life can be viewed as a 2×2 (2 by 2) chart. To improve your lot in life, you must understand what the terms of competition are, and where you stand.
With a goal of constant improvement, you should embark today on a strategy to move “up and to the right”!
