Twelve lessons and how to act upon them

Skills are more valuable than information

No matter what I charge, I’m cheaper than a direct hire

Reinventing your thinking should be a regular activity

People are much easier to reach

It’s even more ok to deliver ahead of schedule

Writing for yourself makes you a better hired gun

Faith in the universe

Going global is my primary strategy

When you slow down, you get more efficient

Offices can be massive time-wasters

There are niches within niches and there’s money there

I am optimistic about the future despite the uncertainty
