Grow up.


Jokes aside, it's scary to think what I would have been like if not for this statement. I was immature as fuck when this person said this to me xD. And it was a person important enough for the words to matter. Hmm. Not really a 'wise saying'.. but aye xD

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” - Sun Tzu

Helped me choose my "battles" I had to deal with throughout life.

Opportunities multiply as they are seized. - Sun Tzu

When I first started in the corporate world after college, I did not have any mentors to advise me in the work place. My knowledge, work ethic and skills were great but the corporate politics I lacked severely. In some jobs, you can be a rockstar, but if Senpai doesn't notice you, you can be stagnant in that position.

I started networking and created a personal mission statement listing my short term goals, long term goals strengths and weaknesses. The quote applied to my life -- because once I fixed my issue of being introverted in the work place, networked more and fixed many of my weaknesses. Senpai did notice me and I got promoted quite a few times. Once I noticed the opportunities multiplied, I seized quite a few of them.

"When I became an adult, I gave up childish things--Including the desire to act very grownup, and the terror of being seen as 'childish'."
- CS Lewis

(Although this was more in the context of learning not to adopt "sophisticated" cynicism over simple open-mindedness, rather than any validation of immature behavior.)

Thinking outside the box and facing reality are nice words that fit that category for me.

But it's fun making idiots realize that they're idiots.
