Tina Roth Eisenburg, also known by her Twitter handle @Swissmiss, is the founder of Creative Mornings, the TeuxDeux app, and Tattly. During the Behance sponsored 99u conference, she talks about the rules that she lives her life by, attributing most of them to her own personal success.
1. Embrace your superpower
Your superpower is your biggest asset.
Be self-aware of your own superpower.
2. Don’t complain, make things better
“If I keep complaining about something, then do something about it, or let it go.”
Some decisions need not be done based on the bottom line. Some times business is about doing the right thing.
3. Choose wisely who you hangout with
“Who you hang out with determines what you dream about and what you collide with. And the collisions and the dreams lead to your changes. And the changes are what you become. Change the outcome by changing your circle.” –Seth Godin
“We systematically overestimate the value of access to information and underestimate the value of access to each other.” -Clay Shirky
Do things internally to make yourself happy.
Little details give your products and services personality.
4. Don’t forget to play
Be able to articulate what you believe in, what you stand for, and what you value.
Measure success by happiness and growth of other around you.
5. Push to be better
What can you do to bring more heart, kindness, and generosity to your work?
