Favorite Principle: #4 Become genuinely interested in other people.

Why: “It has been the one that has impacted my life the most. When you actively listen to others and what they care about, they notice. I have learned so much more about people and what they do since I have actively made the effort to be interested. People are amazing, there’s always more to learn!”
