Don’t run for trains

I don’t run for trains

This is the career advice that I read and liked the most in the excellent book “The Black Swan”

1. Teach yourself to resist running to keep on schedule . In refusing to run to catch the trains ( at various stages in your life) , lies the true value of elegance and aesthetics in behaviour , a sense of being in control of your time , your schedule and your life .

2. “Missing a train is only painful if you run after it !”
Similarly if you seek the idea of success that others expect from you then not matching those expectations become painful – have more control over your life by deciding the criteria of success by yourself.

Miss a TRAIN and not FEEL the PAIN.
