We are attending this year’s SXSW conference in Austin, Texas, and just listened to Tina Roth Eisenberg’s amazing keynote. Tina is a Swiss born expat living in Brooklyn. She runs the design blog SwissMiss, voted by Time Magazine as one of the 50 most influential design outlets.
Tina shared her “11 Rules to live by” with the audience…truly insightful. We would like to share them with you here:
Rule #1: Invest your life in what you love
Rule #2: Embrace enthusiasm
Rule #3: Don’t complain, make things better
Rule #4: You have to trust and empower [your co-workers, your kids, etc.]
Rule #5: Experience is more important than money [i.e., focus on learning]
Rule #6: Surrournd yourself with like-minded people
Rule #7: Collaborate
Rule #8: Ignore haters
Rule #9: Make time to think and breathe
Rule #10: If an opportunity scares you, take it
Rule #11: Be someone’s eccentric aunt [i.e., be someone’s mentor. Tina’s aunt was one of her most important sources for inspiration]
We think that there is a lot of wisdom in these rules. What’s the playbook of for your life?
