“Anna Wintour told me once, that she never leaves a meeting without having made a decision, without having given a decision to her team. That is really, ultimately, the primary responsibility of anybody who is managing a team. I keep that in mind every time I sit down in a meeting. People can’t do their work, they can’t do their job, if they aren’t given the decisions that they need from their leader.” –– Bronson van Wyck, co-founder of Van Wyck & Van Wyck
“Your experience is really dependent on the people who you’re working with and your team surrounding you. Being able to work with people that you are excited to work with, and who you can learn and grow from, can be a huge benefit to your career.” –– Emily Hughes, former Olympian / business analyst at Google
“In the great tradition of these speeches, generally what happens is the speaker says something along the lines of, ‘You need to chase your dreams.’ But I am not going to say that because I don’t believe it. I don’t want you to chase your dreams. I want you to chase your reality. I want you to understand that you chase your reality not at the expense of your dreams, but as the foundation of your dreams.” –– Christopher Nolan, Director
“The idea of a perfect job is a time-dependent definition. The perfect job when you’re straight out of college is not the same as the perfect job even two years out of college, depending on what experience you’ve had. Keep an open mind.” –– Barry Steinglass, vice president of Client Software for Hulu.
“I treat my career like it’s a big company and I’m the CEO. Subway time is office time. While getting from place to place, I email everyone, including my clients and lawyer.” –– Andrew Sotomayor, makeup artist
“Never chase the money, but chase the interesting opportunities –– it will give you the chance to meet the most interesting people, do the most interesting work, and the money will follow.” –– Gina Pak HBS class of 2015
