- Savor the adventure of being different. Seek a path to follow, not a place to be. Keep a "what's next" mindset.
- Master the art of giving. Words of encouragement and sharing your knowledge show people you care and pave the way for repayment.
- Surround yourself with teachers. Associate with those who know things you don't, have skills you don't and have walked paths you've yet to find.
- Find what you love - and do it. You do your best work when you "do what you are."
- Take intelligent risks. Rut-bound people see risk as a disruption of routine. Creative people take calculated risks that extend their comfort zones.
- Go back to school. Rutbusters ascribe to lifelong learning to prevent career plateaus.
- Redefine failure. See it as the price for learning what doesn't work.
