I love reading the things older people wish they knew when they were younger, or the things more experienced people in X field wish they knew when they had started. It’s so interesting to me to learn about the little items that stood out as majorly important in hindsight. Its an exercise we have the new hires complete after they have been working with my company for a while. I’ve ready What I Know Now: Letters to My Younger Self, and Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou. TED talks are full of themes like this. With everything out there in this genre, I am clearly not the only one who is interested.
And now The Atlantic is getting in on the game. They have launched a new video series called Advice to a Younger Me. It will feature interviews with the CEO of GILT, the CEO of DreamWorks, and more. I can’t wait to tune in!
